How much rwhp can a stock mach 1 hold?
The stock pistons and rods are the weak point. You can put a set of 03 manley rods in it along with a quality aftermarket piston. The 03 pistons are sized by each bore in the 03 block and are not worth putting in another engine.Is the block weak and could you just put cobra rods, and pistons in?
Shortblock has cast internals unless it's from a manual car, in which case the crank is forged.Is the block weak and could you just put cobra rods, and pistons in?
Short block is the crank, rods, and pistons. When people say long block it includes the short block and everything in the heads (springs, valves, rocker arms, cams, ect.)question, so after u build the short block do you have to worry about the valves, spring, ect.....?
