I was told everything in the shortblock is forged, but honestly, I don't care. I was going to spend 2k in a dart block, then another 2k on AFR's, then another 2K for internals etc etc etc....... I've got less than 2k in that entire motor. If it blows up, it blows up. I've got the fuel system for 1000hp so I'm not too worried about it really. Dog, you should see the rear half of the car, thats all torn appart too. Doesn't have a trunk in it anymore(working on rear coil overs and a mini-tub). daemion_AF The blower was a YS-trim. Everything is gone now though. Nothing else for sale except for my rear welds.
