buy the rods now, put them in. then start saving. then look for a pagparts 3071 kit.
that would be the intelligent thing to do. it's gettign really fukn old seeing people go hey, just do rods last, and the frequency of the "**** i should've done rods" or " i'm selling my BT car cos of rod knock/blown" threads is getting annoying.
do it right and spend less money. get the rods first, then go down the list. starting with clutch/pp, once again, making it easier as it can be installed prior to build.
wastegate(and dump tube)
front mount(or whatever)
all odd's and ends(oil,filter,coolant,seals and gaskets)
then lastly, software.
this way you can do it in a way of stages. and once you have more $$ you can get a diff. but do us a favor, unless you have more money to have arnold@pagparts tune your car..dont go maestro, cos if your broke and time limited, then it isnt for you to learn and deal with. go unitronic or united motorsport. no others.
