So guys over the next year I think I'm going to try and pull my engine get my block redone and get forged internals added, aftermarket heads cams and intake. The pointing the thread will be to share my plans and progress as I get into it. But I also want some help finding the parts as for forged pistons and crank and all that I'm clueless so all suggestions and help is greatly appreciated. I think I wanna go with the stage 2 comp cams from AM and maybe a typhoon intake, but that's all I've become certain of I want.

I would think about going with a forged shortblock, it'll save you some time and hassle for just a bit more money. Also check out the Trick Flow intake manifolds, they are pretty good manifolds (based off the Bullitt design)

+1 pretty much anything trick flow is good. They make good heads too. MMR has some good forged rotating assembly kits depending on your power goal and budget.

The intake ill check out but I think budget wise I could get my block redone with new internals cheaper since I don't want a 700-1000hp car I think my block would b ok

Are you planning on staying all motor? I thoroughly enjoy building everything myself so I know where you are coming from, I figured I would just toss it out. Make sure to get a quality engine stand, not a cheap stand that basically looks like a T. Lots of guys have watched their hard work go up in flames when the wheels have caught a crack and the stand flipped over.

Can't see in pic, but it's $1500 I believe.
Damn I was kinda hoping to buy all the stuff separate to make it easier to buy

I'm sure you can, that's just a pic I had on hand and from what I've read mmr is pretty reputable. Although kits are generally cheaper overall.
Yea thanks

What would some good sites be to get bottom end parts? And what all do I need for a forged bottom end aside from pistons,rings, and a crank?
