felixthecat I'd do the rods/pistons route. It'll cause more up front, but you won't have issues down the road.

inis at min. do head studs or bolts..whatever the duratec has.

ZXthrizzle05 Ya like tom said here. Just build the whole block. U can still run on stock sized bearings as well. Just buy new stock ones. And remember PLASTIGUAGE!!!

1turbofocus I dont agree , your weak poing is still going to be your rods and Pistons , I would go back with all stock on the rings , bearings , gaskets etc they work well and there cheaper , a better bearing wont do anything for you

My thoughts would be to spend another 1000.00 1300.00 and put in pistons and rods unless you just changing the one hole thats bad ?????

beansfocus I agree with that, now where would I hunt for parts then?
07-09-2012 03:05 PM
ZXthrizzle05 Well if I were u id go for the more stronger route. Cuz u can run large boost amount then and small amount. It wouldn't hurt a thing
07-09-2012 10:38 AM
beansfocus yup I figured I'd need to pull the head. So I'm really contemplating going that route:

Now should I purchase oem parts:
Head gasket
Rings
Connecting rod bearings

Or do are there better alternatives for a mild boost application?

RockAuto seems to have some of the best prices on OEM parts that I could find. I'm not sure where to look into aftermarkets rings, etc..

whynotthinkwhynot You can't put rings in through underneath, so you have to take the head off.
07-08-2012 08:16 PM
ZXthrizzle05 depends on your budget. either way all you have to do is yea pull the pan and hea doff while its still in the car or you can pull it out for easier access. an while ur there just erplace all the rings so you can start with a clean slate
