Circle track race car. I was hoping not to have to buy the 800 dollar piston and rod combo. The engine is all apart right now and ready to go to the machine shop just need to know what to do and buy. I have a SVT header, 2K manifold, adjustable cam gears and bolt ons.

And how much milling to get to that number? I was also planning to use the crower stage 3 cams and springs.

Nope, you'd then have to spend more on custom pistons to fit them.
