Question Build choices

I recently found my compression rings on my SVT is shot. I am now struggling to decide which way to go. I saw CFM has the performance zetec short block for sale all ready to go or should I pull my SVT, go with some forged pistons and rods? Is there some other options I am leaving out that might work better? I was told on the CFM block I cannot use my oil squirters. Any suggestions?

hell I'd just re-ring it if the bores check out for taper and out of round (if you want to be that specific, which you should be....) unless you're going to do any sort of FI stuff I don't see any reason for better internals......

By the signature he is running a Comp Turbo, going with forged internals will be a good idea.

Any specific reason? After I get the rods, pistons, bearings, gaskets, studs etc and have the block oversized etc its the same price as the CFM unit. The only difference is I loose the squirters with the CFM unit

I do not think re-ringing will work. Unless my compression tester is way off, I was at 90 psi across the board.

Thanks

Im mixed emotions on the oil squirters. I read once you go forged internals, theres really NO need for the oil squirters. Plenty of 4/5/600hp hondas runnin forged guts an they always get rid of the squirters

Fernando was running their block (s/n is Fast Tuner). He had the motor in there for 3 years. His biggest numbers on that block were 608whp .
