      Brute rods and Wiseco pistons was what I used. Lower end of pricing and peace of mind.

      @Brake Weight Peace of mind is always a good thing. Do you remember round about what you spent for the parts?

      Little over $1000 but nearly 5 years ago. Still need bearings and bolts and gaskets and a weekend.

      I wouldn’t do an f23 if I knew then what I know now. Just as soon go BT and actually have a freeway runner than MedT and have neither a dragger nor a freeway runner. It’d probably be good on an autocross track.

      I wouldn’t do that Eliminator kit either. Look around for a t3 kit or stick build yourself one. Piecing together a setup isn’t as hard as you’d think.

      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.
