Welcome!

Is your engine broken already? I started doing my own engine rebuilds this year for my Mystic "Hybrid" racecar. It's too expensive to pay someone else to work on my car. 3 engine rebuilds and one crashed car rebuild this season alone.

Let me know if you need anything.

Well, if you have boost planned, then you are heading in the right direction!

Gotta get better rods/pistons if you want it to survive that kind of power increase. Are you doing all the work yourself or are you sending it out to a machine shop for some of the build?

I found a local machine shop that I work with and I do all the assembly except for the bottom end of the motor and the valvetrain.
