Really got the itch for power. Hows the build sheet look?

Just like the title says i'm looking at making some more power. I've put together a list so far of parts I'm planning on getting but right now i'm just getting a list together so i know what to budget.

Big Plans:
ARP head studs
Valve springs
Carrillo Rods
Either a diesel site 4r100 or a stage 3 Sam Wyse

Delipped pistons
Getting the cylinders honed

Oil Pan
Dip Stick

What do yous think? do the pistons? Other parts i should consider? Thanks

180/30s,KC38R, CNC Fab Stg 2 HPOP, Sump, Walbro, Donaldson 6637, Leveled, 4'' straight to 7'' tip, 08 mirrors, 6.0 front end ect...

Iíd put the bottom end together with a girdle and studs while youíre there. Also a regulated return if you donít have one already

You didn't mention your desired power or purpose of the build, so recommendations are kind of tough. If you're going to push those injectors you'll run out of Hpop long before you do injector. The 38r may be a problem with egt's buy without knowing your use goals it's hard to tell. Also if you're running any spring other than stock, you'll need stronger pushrods. Since you're talking after market rods, plan on a full rebalance of the engine if you want it to stay together. I'm sure there's more....

If you do valve springs, you need new push rods

If you do the carrillo rods, just do the pistons, as you will have to have a balance job done anyways.

I would do a girdle....but it depends on HP goals

A stock forged rod bottom end should be able to handle 250/100s for a while. People have ran 300/200s on the stock bottom end without issue. Stiffer valve springs are a must, along with a good fuel system like the CNC 4 line kit.
