Do a search on...

* Spool Rods
* CP Pistons
* If your cashed up, Atomic
I have crow springs, and fitted with no machining of the AU head.

Cheers

Daz

also have a look on boostedfalcon.com, there is group buy going on right now for this sort of stuff, expect to spend about $1900 on rods and pistons. pretty good value actually. Mahle pistons, I think spool rods.

I am running CP forgies, and argo H-Beam rods. nice combo.

get your block inspected see if you need a bore or just a hone, then you will know what size pistons to order.

Throw an ACL bearing and gasket kit through it, linish your crank as a minimum. new oil pump, oil pressure sender, since its coming out, a full gearbox fulid change as a minimum. check your AUX drive for excessive or dundue wear. chuck a BF starter in while you have the opportunity, the skin in your knuckles will thank you for it.
