Brute rods and Wiseco pistons was what I used. Lower end of pricing and peace of mind.
Rods & pistons. Those Ford 47# injectors are a good base at a good price. 4bar FPR. TIP for particular turbo. 3” MAF housing and sensor or rerun original (tuner must know which sensor). May as well do timing belt and water pump when head is off. Cheap fleaBay FMIC and piping. Ran a Bosch 044 but it died. Don’t remember which one, but replaced it with one of these intank pumps: https://www.highflowfuel.com/c-10973...olkswagen.html
Water/Methanol injection post IC and preTB isn’t necessary. But it makes a world of difference. I just run straight distilled water nowadays but it still cools like a MFer. The intake mani will be cold and have condensation on the outside after a good summer time highway pull.
