Forged Rotating Assembly

I'm looking into getting a standard size forged rotating assembly. I'm just looking for recommendations on what a good budget assembly would be. I've been doing some searching and most of the kits I find are for 2V 4.6s and all the few 3V kits I've found are 298 stroker kits. All those kits are around $2300+ and I'm wondering if there are any cheaper kits out there.

I have their kit with the upgraded forged Kellog crank, H beam rods and ARP 2000 bolts. Their pistons are a work of art and are made in the USA. I have the -5cc dish pistons. If you need to call them, ask for Eric.

I've been reading mixed reviews of DSS, but it seems to only pertain to their motors. Should I be worried about this? Should I be worried that the linked assembly isn't forged?

It depends how much power you want to make. The cast crank is good to 650whp. As far as the forged crank and H beam rods. They are they same parts that most other vendors sell. As far as their engines go, I have know idea if people have had issues with them. I personally would never buy an engine from any company that was not local to me. I would want to be able to drive to the shop and talk face to face with the builder.

With that kit you linked me do you think I'd safely be able to go to 600 rwhp?

I would love to build my own engine but it's hard to find competent machine shops that know what they are doing when it comes to the Ford modular motors.

The next on my mod list is to get a built engine. I really like the aluminators but is a alum short block needed for upping the boost or just a forged rotating assembly? My ultimate goal as always been a 10 second street car with all the creature comforts. or is a new alum block just for weight reduction?

I think our stock blocks are good to like 1000 HP. Most people just forge the internals. And you already have an aluminum block. I'm fairly certain the aluminator is just a built short block and thats it.

Okay, I guess that is what I'm going to look into next. I double checked and they are alum. So internals here I come!
