Some more q's

Hey Tom,


Just want to know your opinion on pistons and rods.
I plan on getting your turbo kit, my power goal is 300 WHP easily, to where I could run 350 WHP.

I realize I will need some beef. so I was planning on EAGLE RODS and either JE PISTONS or SUPERTECH.

Just wondering what you think of these. I know you have some crower billet and stuff, but I just wont have that kind of money. I should be able to run 300 + with eagle and je right?

Thanks

i was pestering him on my 500+whp build and told him i had 9-1 compression supertech pistons and eagle rods. he said the rods would be garbage but never said anything about the pistons themselves so i guess they would be okay.

i seriously wonder how well eagles would perform and last in the 500-550whp range? i already have some for my build that i was originally shooting for 650+ but ive significantly lowered my standards. i think the problem with breaking cranks changed my mind.
