    Can't wait to see this buildup. If it is anything like your last we have got something in store.

    Forged rods, factory forged pistons (good to 550bhp). Ported head, either another holset or a GT3076R or a TD05-20G. Haven't decided the turbo yet

    Finally got the pistons, but I have a feeling these are only .010 over. Have to find out for sure, but dropped everything off at the machine shop today.
