I have an 02 svt with the usual stuff done to it(underdrive pulleys, sri, msd coil pack and wires, and larger throttle body)
If I get new forged rods and pistons, how much power could my engine handle? Thats with larger injectors and BAP as far as fuel goes.

I would like to know that, and capabilities of stock svt engine (with larger fuel pump/bap) please!
power to the FI

Tom's drag car is making 750hp. By the way, that short ram is actually hurting the HP.

you can make tons of power with forged rods and pistons with the stock block and crank. but it isnt even close to as easy as just throwing in some forged rods and pistons.
john made over 360whp on a completely stock engine. 300whp would be a very reliable car with a good tune.

The key to a lasting motor is a GOOD TUNE!!!

yea there is a local dude that i heard from a few people that does an amazing tune. The SRI came on the car and i dont have the stock intake

sweet, so safe to say... 300whp with stock engine reliable daily driver
and over that with the forged pistons/rods

the possibilities are endless, all that matters is how deep your pockets are.[;)]

if i got the pistons/head what would be the best compression to get
