currently running D16Z6 with a block guard boosting at 1 bar with stock internals . making 218whp . hoping to hit 400bhp soon ( maybe 1.7 bar ) . Will be getting fabricated mugen guard . And looking for eagle rods / forged pistons now . what i need to know is do i need a forged crank also ? what else should i get

running a VF22 with TD05 Bearing . Tuned with E-Manage

your crank will be fine... i met a kid a couple days ago running 23psi on his Z6 with a stock crank- rest of the internals were forged stuff though...

hmmm... mechanically i cant think of anything else you'd really NEED to run that much boost-
whats your fuel system and ignition system setup? thats all i can really think of that might need to be upgraded- and oh yeah- 2.5 bar or 3 bar MAP sensor... but you've probably already got one... lol

ignition is stock dizzy with NGK cables . planning to get a G sport coil . injectors are 390cc . fuel pump is 255 L p/hr bosch i think . got that map sensor for the e-manage already .

actually 300whp will be enough for me . im afraid i wont be able to drive it around properly . lol

i was actually looking into those tunertoys rods and from what i've read they will fit right in the block without notching them like you would have to with the eagles someone correct if im wrong or saying it wrong but im still reading stuff up on them.

If the rods are forged (which they are) and they are the same (which I've read they are) then there is no reason that they can't handle the same amount of power. I work in construction and It's like saying don't buy a steel beam from steel fabricator "a" rather than steel fabricator "b" just because fabricator "a" is cheaper even though they buy steel from the same mill.

The only discrepency (sp?) which I am unsure of are the rod bolts. Some people say that TT doesn't use ARP bolts and some say that they do. Also I've read that the rod bolt diameter may be different. But again this is just heresay. Just email them and ask.

If there is a after market crank availble then get it.

No you do not need an aftermarket crank the stockers have been proven to take well up to 1000 hp and more. the nly reason you change it is if your strokin it. (the engine not yourself :p )

I have a set of used crower rods, and forged je stock bore d16 pistons for sell if you want them. Even though eagle rods are cheaper, they look thicker, and where the end cap meats the rod you cant even see a line the machineing is so good.

hey saw this Eagle ACL bearings for $110 . Should i get that ? will it help ? ive blown an engine before due to rod bearing

Endyn rollerwaves are great for your prokect and will aid in keeping detonatino away on pump fuel so you can usually run 1-2 extra lbs over others.
