Ehhhhhhh i was doing a budget rebuild. those are stock ranger pistons with valve reliefs. probably lost .0005 cr, stock rods. went with very minor head work...gasket match and new valves. b/s delete. hot tank block, polished crank, balanced...mild to the max just to get it going, next one on the stand will be a nice strong n/a build YEA ITS FOED RED!!!!

If you want an aluminum valve cover, instead of the plastic, I have one off the motor I just put in my ST, (I put the plastic one on my car.)

I did all the design and R&D for the k1 rods back in late 2004 there good rods at a good price

The bearing tangs are only there to position the bearing in its place when you install it thats all the tangs do , many think there there to keep the bearing from turning but they are not

That price was a quarter of the cosworth price of rods, im sure there just as good. I don't think this build would have happened otherwise.

Update

I have Been working on some little things so my update took a while to post.
The car is running very smooth! Even with the lower compression, u cant tell any difference. Ill be dyno tuning in about a week so im looking for about 300 with this turbo setup.

Update

Basically went to the dyno and maxed out the injectors!!!!
Going with 80lb cobra jet and trying again in 2 weeks, though i reached 290hp at 4K and he had to let out cause i ran lean. The boost was about 17-18 psi.

NICE pull. have you thought running secondaries? this way you keep like 24 or 30 for normal driving & the secondaries kick n when they hit the rpm u set the mega squirt for so like 30 all day & then 72 lbs one kick in when ready to build power
