I currently can’t afford a 15k forged short block.
Just do the forged pistons. stock rods and crank are plenty strong.
Too many people use forged rods and expensive forged/billet cranks when they dont need to, at that power level where those parts would be needed, the stock block would be the next to rip apart.
