I have just grabbed an eaton m90 blower second hand kit and also got almost a another engine less pistons, the block has been machined 20 thou over so im thinking of building something that can take a bit of boost like 17 pound or more so does anyone have any recommendations for what pistons i should i use and what intercooler i should use like W2A or A2A im looking to get about 320kw im open to any ideas!

VZ GTO. VS LS1.
To handle 17psi you'll definately need a good cooler (personally i prefer a2a over w2a but both have their pros and cons) and a set of forged pistons. Mark from TTT Engineering (who is a site sponsor here) does forged Ross Racing pistons in 0.020" over. That's what i've got in mine.
Also, when you say you've bought an M90 kit, I assume you'll do a top swap onto an L36 (ecotec) bottom end? Do you have the L67 or L36 rods??? I wouldn't recommend more than 10psi on the stock L36 rods.
Oh, and you'll need a bit more than boost and an intercooler to crack 320kw. What cam will you run? Any porting to the heads or blower? Intake setup? Mafless tune?
Jump on http://l67torque.net/ there's a great wealth of knowledge on the L67's there.
Cheers,
Chris.
