      Its not so much the pistons in question as the stockers are of decent composition albeit with less margin for error on the tuning side. Its the wrist pins you really need to worry about. Engine knock...

      Funny as I just spoke with a local with his 7 yr old kit the other day. Popped into the shop out of nowhere. He's got almost 80k miles on his car since the build. How time flies... Great to hear...

      They used completely different pistons and piston rings. I think they were going for a low friction compression primary ring which had sealing issues. Many pistons were actually replaced by Gen 1...

      This is correct. The con rods have been lightened on this generation motor (maybe its just the R's) to lighten the rotating assembly so not sure what they can ultimately hold but for all intents and...

      The connecting rods are drop forgings but with lower carbon, nickel and chromium content to aid in machinability and fracture splitting tech. They are a somewhat tough production forging but they...

      Actually its 3685 for the internally gated version (985 difference). Biggest differences:

      -manifold is ss proprietary alloy (made in the USA) and not iron. Its also much easier to take off/on...

      Absolutely. All the new gen cats come with pinned and press on gears so no bolts for an easy drop in solution

      This is a loaded question but for all around a 6758 is an intriguing option.

      Sorry, we do not provide our new wheels separately. They are actually larger then the 71mm Garrett wheel so it requires a complete cartridge disassembly, machining and reassembly

      Requiring cams with anything under a 30R sized turbo is debatable. I've made over 450+whp rather easily and with good response with the stock cams

      You do not need a twin scroll setup if you are looking for something with good response in that power range in the EFR lineup. The EFR6758 with .64ar would suffice. I've set up some ppl with my...

      A turbocharger absolutely forces air into the engine. It is by design a compressor and its job is to compress beyond what the engine can ingest on its own and the act of building PSI between the...

      Check out your compressor wheel and make sure it's intact. On journal bearing turbos, when the turbine breaks, there is nothing that holds the shaft in place. The thrust bearing prevents 'walk' when...

      I got it slightly different and this was after logging and tuning them exhaustively with the WRONG injector specs, but I got:

      8v 2.070
      10v 1.675
      12v 1.237
      14v .989
      16v .803

      I agree with the 4 thrust washers. Also, its easier to have the crank centered before lowering the center main in there.
