      Go for the inconels. Seems to be a misconception of them bending but they are bonded to a SS stem. I have a head here with bent inconel valves on a timing belt failure and none of them let loose. The...

      Do not cheap out on the wrist pins. The STD mild steel pins that comes with all the base off the shelf pistons are not going to withstand abuse. You might as well keep the stock pistons in place.

      Its not so much the pistons in question as the stockers are of decent composition albeit with less margin for error on the tuning side. Its the wrist pins you really need to worry about. Engine knock...

      Funny as I just spoke with a local with his 7 yr old kit the other day. Popped into the shop out of nowhere. He's got almost 80k miles on his car since the build. How time flies... Great to hear...

      They used completely different pistons and piston rings. I think they were going for a low friction compression primary ring which had sealing issues. Many pistons were actually replaced by Gen 1...

      This is correct. The con rods have been lightened on this generation motor (maybe its just the R's) to lighten the rotating assembly so not sure what they can ultimately hold but for all intents and...

      The connecting rods are drop forgings but with lower carbon, nickel and chromium content to aid in machinability and fracture splitting tech. They are a somewhat tough production forging but they...

      Actually its 3685 for the internally gated version (985 difference). Biggest differences:

      -manifold is ss proprietary alloy (made in the USA) and not iron. Its also much easier to take off/on...

      Absolutely. All the new gen cats come with pinned and press on gears so no bolts for an easy drop in solution

      This is a loaded question but for all around a 6758 is an intriguing option.

      Sorry, we do not provide our new wheels separately. They are actually larger then the 71mm Garrett wheel so it requires a complete cartridge disassembly, machining and reassembly

      Requiring cams with anything under a 30R sized turbo is debatable. I've made over 450+whp rather easily and with good response with the stock cams
