    Question Big baller high hp builders help me choose rods an

    I am looking to have about 9.5:1 compression on a 2000 ls1 block and about 700 hp this summer with a turbo build and hoping to have 900 next year. I want to keep it a 346ci with stock crank for now. I am looking to spend about $1000-$1500 on rods and pistons (cheaper the better, but not in quality) and $500 for bearings, rings, gaskets, etc.

    This is going to be my DD on 93, I have all sorts of electronic ideas and contraptions for my turbo build

    Thanks, John

    I like Mahle pistons.
    Lunati rods.
    ARP rod bolts.

    And you will be looking at a 347 when the hone is done.

    My 404 has =
    Mahle -12cc forged dish pistons
    Eagle 6.125 4340 forged H-beam rods
    Eagle 4.000 4340 forged crank 24x reluctor
    ARP Main Studs
    Mahle rings
    King bearing

    I have it in the goat but need a few more hours wrench time before I'll be ready to fire it up

    I ran through a lake of a puddle, suck a bunch of water up the cold air intake and blew #7 rod out the side of the block and bottom of the pan... So now its got a bigger better motor going in

    Hope to test fire it in the morning
