easyist way to work it out is sent a power goal and how you want to achive it

then look into what combos you can use to achive it and what you need to do it then go look into pricing


if your just after a good reliable bottom end which will be safe just get everything rebuilt and balanced properly
possibly change the rods as i beleive they are weakness and your set

just make sure your tune perfect to suit your set up

On the reliable part, does that include the pistions also? forged is all i can find..

Rb30 rods are good for 300kw according to some people im sure a balanced bottom end will help cope with that. Forgies cost around 1300 unless your in the know so with those theres not much chance to build a decent motor for under 2000. For a good rebuild budget $5000
