GT42 Engine Build

I got a good block for cheap and I'm looking to build it for a GT4294 or other similar turbo.
I am planning on 550-600.. I drove a CR 5.9 this week that dyno'd 545HP and that was amazing!!
I figured I would ask you guys and see what you recommend..

I am pretty sure I will go with WOP Cryno'd forged factory rods.

Pushrods - Who is the best? Does it make a difference? H11 is the most desirable?

Pistons- I was thinking Mahle.. I am not finding any reason to go with any other manufacturers. Any suggestions?
I plan on sending them off to swaintech to get ceramic tops and teflon sides. Sound reasonable?

Girdle- Should I go with one? I got some pricing on them for right around $800 sounds like something that is reasonably priced.

Turbo - I was thinking GT4294 or maybe a QSSB turbo.. I wish I had specs on that turbo..

Injectors - I will go with Cass's sticks for sure.. He saved me alot of $$$ on my work truck! I was thinking 238 or 250cc sticks.. 100% nozzles?

Has anybody had BTS do the engine build? Someone want to PM me an idea on pricing? I'm only 170 miles away from them so I was considering that.

There is some stuff I'm forgetting.. I will throw it out when I remember it haha..
Thanks fellas

Re: GT42 Engine Build

Why not go cummins? Just curious.

WOP short block is a great start for your idea's though.

Re: GT42 Engine Build

Air? You mean a larger turbo? I didn't plan on doing any head work.. maybe ceramic coating on exhaust valves etc...

Got some info to read through on such a plan of action??

Marty, I will prob end up going CR 5.9 eventually.. I just think this is a fun project. It's like 15k at beans.. I don't wanna spend that yet on a toy truck haha

Re: GT42 Engine Build

I weighed 8050 at a pull this summer with no weights or ballast (just toolbox and assorted cab trash), so say Marty has cut 1k of weight out of his (no idea, just guessing) then he's runnin somewhere near 740 on a stock bottom end. If he's only 500# lighter than me, he's around 800.

He's lucky, but I don't think you need to sink money into rods and a girdle if you're only shootin for 550-600.

Especially if you're plannin on a CR down the road.

Well if it's held together this long at 7-750, then I don't recon a guy needs a girdle or fancy rods at 600. As long as he ran the right tuning.

Re: GT42 Engine Build

Im on pmrs currently cant say numbers yet I will post a dyno sheet soon dont know really but ive been right under 6 before its in the tooooning. this one stock bottom end and had been treated very naughty on the street since its birth. you should be happy coat your main and rod bearings in DFL while your at it pick up another 10 -13hp Dry film lubricant and ceramic coat your oil pan too then cryo your planetary, input and output shaft on your tranny and rods, and try and break it everyday with no worries. coat your turbine side with black satin if your gonna ceramic coat up pipes and turbo keep the heat flowing quickly get a tranny coooler too from a 6.0 and enjoy 600hp is alot on the street in a 7.3 compared to a 500hp Porsche or vettte dont kill yourself. you'll have torque
