As said above the ring gap on a stock motor would be the limiting factor. As heat builds, rings can butt and destroy a piston.

    If it were me I would run a stock crank, forged 6.125 rods, forged pistons, decent blower cam and e85. I never realized how crap pump 98ron fuel is until I started tuning. On unleaded you would be extremely knock limited and have a really small tuning window. IMO if its not a daily driver go straight for e85.

    I'd like to think that was the result of a dodgy backyard cam install but something tells me otherwise...

    I'm about to head down to Motor Torque for the third time in 14 months ( not for issues but for further upgrades ). 1000Km's each way is a small price to pay for what they do.
