    So you think the pi engine swap first..then a blower later might be a good route? I just thought over 400 real wheel was pushing it on the stock internals and didn't want to be on borrowed time from the start of my new engine ya know. Does anyone know the cost of rebuilding with forged internals..pistons and rods. Thanks for the input guys.

    LOL, I was just bitchin.

    For a rotating assembly there's a number of companies that sell them.
    You'll have to get it all assembled ect.

    I went with Livernois on mine.
    There's also VTengines,
    Powerheads
    bunch of others, try a search maybe.

    You going stock block or buying a shortblock, already assembled?

    well im going for the PI engine swap. later on i do want a small/shortblock tho. yea probably an already assembled one, i dont know how to build/rebuild engines....atleast not yet and buyin a smallblock alone will be alot of $$$$$$ to have it swapped into my car. Is that what u meant by......You going stock block or buying a shortblock, already assembled?

    Ya, that's what I meant, if you're putting better rods / pistons in the stock block, or getting a shortblock all assembled.

    I actually used my stock block on mine.
    but you gotta pay to have it honed and assembled.
