So I'm looking at a turbo setup and I was planning on getting the trickflow heads but they are 2 grand. Since I would be going forced induction is there any reason to get those still or should I just get the pi heads?
I want to build my motor first so I'm not fuc**d when it does blow up. That's why I was asking if I should just go pi heads or the tfs.Dont worry with either. Just run the npi heads for now. Im one to organize the build in sections or not changing a lot while focusing on the main goal. Turbo first...run it, build forged engine after you destroy stock engine, then heads and so on.
If you go trickflow heads and a turbo, you'll be looking to buy a new bottom end and possibly heads again after you go WOT the first time. It'll snap the rods and shoot them out the side of the block. I'd put the turbo on, then baby it on 5-8psi while you source a Teksid block and build a bottom end, and then heads if you want.
Pi heads (which can be found for 500 bucks) are good enough to get you to 800 easily. I'll tell you what your asking though is a lot of money like 20k in money. I have 10k in my motor and turbo kit, that I built myself and the bottom is a 03 cobra short block.
I can see your confusionOk I'm confused then because another time I asked about forced induction on here these guys swore to me that a cast steel block won't break if I'm pushing 600-700 hp even with a remanufactured stock crank and putting the 2013 boss rods in bc they are rated to 700 hp and then going forged Pistons and heads whether that is pi or tfs. So that's why I'm asking. I don't plan on just getting the heads and that's it I was planning to do what I just said. What if I went with a cobra crank (forged) forged rods and forged Pistons on the stock block? Would that work for my goals?
What fuel are you planning running? That ultimately will determine how much boost you can run and how much power you will make and what parts combo would be best for you setup.
