    You guys know of anyone who sells crate motors ready to go? Looking into doing a Big bore w/ forged internals and some VT Stage 2 cams. I will re-port my P.I.s if nessacary. Was thinking about doing this then tuning the ATI for around 17 psi. Just from the new motor alone w/ out the blower I should be pushing close to 300-350 you think?

    VT doesn't sell stock replacement shortblocks...only forged ones.

    Must not have heard about VT Engines as they build the best engines and have a great reputation for standing behind their work. Scott and Jim are top notch!!
