I;ve never heard or seen those before. I'd stick w/ a popular brand. What pistons you going w/? Cams? You doing a 23 head? SS valve's? Or how 'bout a 23 motor build? Yeah, do a 23 & be done w/ it.

Yea I had never heard of them either they were having a sale that only had 3 hrs left so wanted to see if anyone heard of them and from research I didn't get much. Seems they havent been around that long 2-3years maybe a little more but IDK so theres really no documented builds or info.
An I wasn't just gonna go out on a limb to buy them.
Also trying to stay away from eagle and cxracing.

I havent totally decided what Im going with but Im thinking about a 2.0 with a stock 2.3 head (at least for now) but it will have crower springs, retainers along with supertech valves, stem seals.
An possibly the custom crower stage 2 turbo cams.

As for the rest Im still looking into what Im doing but Im thinking something similar to the FSWerks Street Tuner Challenge car.

Whats wrong w/ eagle rods? If your doing a n/a motor I'd do a 23 motor to begin w/. If your going turbo, I wouldn't do cams, just add a 23 head on your 20 motor. Sounds great keep us posted.

Well I have heard mixed reviews with eagle rods and Im not sure how far Im going to take the build at this point but I don't want to end up having to tear the motor back apart or end up with some catastrophic failure due to weak or cheap parts (lol).

It is a turbo build. I seen you were commenting on the other post I have up and I added a lot of info there if you havent seen it yet.
Post Clevite Bearings or Cosworth Bearings?
