Hey all, i've started the slow process of turboing my falcon and have some question about the best bottom end to run. I am using a garrett t04b turbo which i eventually plan to run a maximum of 12psi. What do you guys think would be the best value for money bottom end to run? i Was thinking a standard au crank balanced and blue printed, au rods and aftermarket forged pistons, would this be capable of handling the sort of boost im after reliably, is it an overkill? any help would be great

id go a freshen up of the engine, balance the crank, get good rods and a good set of pistons, and when the motor goes bang u could spend the $$$ and go forged pistons etc.

Righto thanks, im only planing to runa maximum of 12psi so i think ill keep the stock bottom end, maybe just get it balanced, and i got a set of heavy duty valve springs so ill fit them also.

Yep if rpm is the same they strong engines..Its just when power is doubled that anything weak will let go..If pulling engine down though I'd fit some better rod bolts, you'll s**t yourself when you see how small they are..The rod will need re- clearancing the big end as it can alter when machining for bigger bolts...

word on the street though is that those rods are good for 300KW.

Has Micheal's EB had any head work? Valves, porting, etc?

bogan has a 3.9/4.0

And yeh, those stock rods are pretty strong. I guess if you've got the money to make 300+ RWKW, i'm sure you could spare the few hundred extra dollars to get stronger rods..
