Default I need pictures of stock connecting rods.

I'm going home to look at my spare motor that came with the FM Kit. I want to compare the pictures to the rods. If it is forged, I'll use that motor.

If not, I'll swap the turbo.
Thanks.

Thanks. I hope it is forged. I would so run more boost.
1. What factors involve running more rpms without destroying the motor. I know some guys were talking about 9000 rpms. Rods, bearings & caps. Do you need different cams?

I want to stop at 250-275 hp. That is my goal to acheive. From what I read everything breaks after that. And this is my daily driver.

2. If not forged, I plan on using an earlier post about running low boost at 6psi on a manual controller, and having a toggle hooked up to my MS EBC for 12psi.

What do you think?

I don't think you need 9000rpm for 250- 275hp, unless you plan to run less than 8psi which would be daft.

Yea, I should of been more clear. My current power goals aren't as radical. But I was curious as to what it takes to rap 9000 RPMs.

It would be cool to have a stickey of what to do for different Hp goals. And in what order.

As Ben says, sub 300hp you should not even thing about raising your limiter.
For a safe 9K RPM you need rods, balanced crank, and lots of head/valvtrain work.

Something like this would probably stop alot of newbie questions like mine. I had a better site. They had it broke down into 4 sections, and different hp goals. But the history was deleted on this computer.

It would be cool for some of our vendors to post there products in web links like this. I know most of us are cheap. But I think a it would pull in some attention for the site and vendors.

This is kind of a weird question. There are alot of ways to make any given amount of power especially if you're going to build a motor. It kinda depends on budget, what you have laying around, racing class rules constraints, personal style, ect.
