    Are you gonna buy billet rods?

    Standard forged pistons are good enough.

    Unless your 18.1+ compression boosted or not, it would be a waste.

    A local shop that was close but had little modular experience.

    Well I have a 5.4 with JLP rotating assembly and JLP heads and cams and a Hps intake..... planning on a modified on3 kit.... hopefully next summer it will be ready to start installing safety gear. Goal is the 200mph club.. ... I just need to gtfo of Washington state hahahaha 3 months of sunshine is not enough!

    I couldn't decide on the HPS intake or running a lightning lower and intercooler with a custom hat, I didnt want to deal with the intercooler pump issues at high boost air to air is safer. I mean there are a lot of factors and I just wanted to keep it simple, cost low and less things to break of **** with
