Alright everyone I know there are plenty of threads in relations to this post but I am wanting the most updated responses with the direction I am going in. This isnt something I plan on doing right away but its information I feel is important before I start throwing more power at my car. My current setup is a completely stock 02 PI 2v longblock, boltons and a blower. Car is making right around 400rwhp. Plans are to go intercooled and start cranking the boost up but really not wanting to put much more stress on these stock internals and ruin this 2v block. So here is my plan. I want to build a very budget oriented 2v. I have a good NPI shortblock sitting in the corner of my shop and was thinking of building it up or even my current PI block. My goal is to get the car up to 600hp down the road. Im just going to make a bullet point of questions below here.... Will the cast romeo block be able to handle it or will I need to go teksid? Really dont want to source other blocks. Will the stock crank be able to handle the power? Heard they can take quite a bit of abuse. Will boss rods work in both the NPI or PI 2v's? I heard they are quite a cheap alternative and can handle some power. Whats the best budget friendly pistons to go with? I guess me who has never built an engine before am missing quite a few things that will need to be purchased but that is why i posting these questions. Figured it would make more since to have a stout engine before I go throwing lethal pressure into a glass house 2v lol. Thanks for all the help.
