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..
