i agree with every one else. head work and cams is un-needed for 300whp. just do pistons and rods with arp headbolts and stock headgasket and throw it back together. spend that money on a clutch, fw, lsd, and 3" exhaust. and no need to rev the piss out of it, 300whp dd is very easy to do. a simple kit like toms with a turbo like a gt28rs will be perfect, and just like tom said a precision is a reworked garrett. the 2k IM is a one piece unit instead of being 2 piece like the newer manifolds. mine held 27psi for over a year no problem.

good luck with our build, your in the right place for plenty of useful advice. most of us here have made 300whp lol
