    Engine upgrade kit

    Ok so since we're doing the turbo kit we are trying to get the ball rolling on this as well. As of now no one has really pushed the stock engine to its limits so no one can be sure how much punishment the engine can take and for how long. The car were working on will only be running a thicker head gasket to lower compression slightly to help out. However they're not shooting for huge hp ( or at least they weren't lol).

    My question is who would be interested in a full engine upgrade kit. Including pistons and rods head gasket valve cover gasket pins rings and head studs. The pistons were looking at doing 9.2:1 to lower compression slightly.

    If the engine is getting ripped apart might as well do cams too. Just something a little more aggressive

    Cams would be possible we could do a fuel lobe cam that would allow a little more head room in the stock hpfp as well.

    Why would it be beneficial to lower compression?

    You will have a handful of owners that may do this...the rest would be worried about getting water in the engine when it was apart to build it.
    .. I have a car, and it has some car stuff on it...and we do car things together
