Alright I know your out there right now sooo lets be real. The jrsc sucked...I had to try it cuz I always wanted a charger it was cheap...OK IT WAS CHEAP...After I took it off I found Not much gain with other bolt ons (diff cams etc) So the difference was there but little..As I posted before I bought a motor from the yard and its now at the point of going back toghter..I am still quite unfamiliar with four cyl power production so help me here (if you can)..On the most driveable highest yeald motor that I cannot blow..I also know this is a oxymoron...

Ok first off, why that CR? What springs? What retainers?

Why no pistons?

Why knife edge the crank and where are you getting this engine machining lingo?

Well first off I know that higher compression and forced induction are friends if you keep it cool..Second the springs are crane the rets are the same..as far as why CUZ pistons I was thinking about ceramics because I have not built a motor with them yet..The cost a far as durability I believe is good...Bit I`m not sure..As for end results I`m lookin at about 220-230whp all year driving ability..With a long lasting car.
