I want a 350-80 hp motor. I mentioned that I HAD an 800hp motor theoretically at one point, and it blew in two weeks. What im having built now is fine for the stock pistons.

What tq level are you at that you are having traction issues 1st-4th? Why not go with larger tires and wheels to control the tq?

225/50 MT's will control the torque up to 400-425 in second, and they'll put up a hell of a fight in first

^^^^yeah, but they are a straight line tire. I cut my teeth as a road racer, straight line performance is fun, but only if you can back in up in the corners.

More scale pics. These rods are way beefier and yet lighter then the stock rods

Are those close enough in weight, or should they be within a gram or less of each other?

Yeah no drag strip stuff for me. In all honesty guys, after buying these, I can say that it could have really gone either way. Yes these are cheaper than M-tuned but in the end, at least you're not taking a chance on quality.
