View Full Version : 99 engine buildup questions....

01-07-2003, 07:16 AM
This is a cross post from the corral forums, but I am requesting input from this august group :). Question follows:

I am in the process of gathering parts to build a 99 DOHC and need some help on parts. Plan on supercharging (approx 10 psi).

So far we have the following:
Used aluminum 4.6 block
Used forged crank
New Manley .020 over pistons (9.2:1, forged)
New Eagle H-beam rods (forged)

Need recommendations on: (what and why)
Rings - possibly Total Seal or ?
Bearings - Federal Mogul, Clevite77 or ?
Gaskets - Ford stock or ?

We plan on using ARP hardware throughout.

Thanks for the help.

I used plasma-moly steel rings. I got everything from Sean Hyland. I used all ford gaskets with the exception of headgaskets.
