I'm about to purchase a KB next month, but if I can buy the long block with the same price, what will benefit me more and less headache? What else do I have to buy if I go with MMR longblock? Thanks
You should be fine man. Just don't go crazy with the boost. 7-9lbs. Intercooled should be perfect.I think I can finally seal the deal with my first option and I hope my engine will last me for awhile. Car been in the garage for almost a year and I know I have to change all of the fluids again.
You can go over 400, you'll be on borrowed time though. Also if you have a good tuner around you, your car will be fine. Most motors blow because either too much power, or a really shitty tune. I've read about motors blowing at 350rwhp because of the tune.I'm going 9lbs psi with intercool set-up. Searching this forum also say don't go above 400 RWHP.
Ya everyone says the weak link after 400 horses will be my internals. If I can get 380 horses that will be alright for me. The tuner in my area is actually pretty good according to everyone here. Lucky for me I have my SCT and that what he runs.You can go over 400, you'll be on borrowed time though. Also if you have a good tuner around you, your car will be fine.

The 9psi I/C'd setup should but you ~38x/37x. That's just my guess though.
What else do I need beside the long block because I'm not really familiar building a modular engine. Which one is better between MMR and DSS in your opinion? The only reason I would like to have KB because it comes with the power from idle on up and also want to limit my rear wheel horses to 400.I'd do the long block then the KB, that way you could be a little more agressive with the boost with no worries of scattering the engine...but thats just me.
