With a 2k budget...


Did you look for just forged rods and pistions? I think those would be less than 2k, and maybe leave enough for new gaskets...

But if you are going to have a shop do it, then most of your budget will be eaten up by just labor fees.

Click on products, and then on modular engine components. The rods and pistons won't vary from whatever head you are using. Just so long as you get things for a 4.6, 4.6 stroker, or 5.4... Whichever you are building.
