    Ok, I'm about to order a rebuild kit with hypereutectic pistons of course.......is there an alternative for better connecting rods? H beam are unnecessary for ME, but I'm starting to get paranoid....:shocked:


    For a cammed 4.2 daily driver....Yes I know forged is best but i'm on a budget and no whay I'm gonna pay $800+ for a forged Wiseco piston set....

    Forget forged! Only if your going to high mass amounts of compression

    "Good" and "budget" don't go together... Ever.

    no s/c........hyper...pistons would be fine for any na. heck they did good with 12lbs of boost in a previous engine. BUT the rods are the question......
