the idea so far, is MMR 900 rotating assembly new cobra cast block, stage 3 cnc heads, windage thingy arp head bolts, their street racing oil pump, timing kit 5/16 pick up tube, 7 quart oil pan with the bungs welded in so that my swap to turbos wont be hard, might get adjustable cam timing gears, havnt decided what to do about cams yet. 9.5 to 1 compression pistons. Might be forgetting stuff, not sure. obviously all gaskets.

The windage thingy is a windage tray to keep oil from splashing up onto the crank and creating drag on the rotating assembly. The adjustable cam timing gears are a waste in my opinion. Other than that, sounds good.

i say thingy cuz im tired and couldnt remember lol altho i do know what it does, and like i said not sure about the timing stuff. i dont know if its a waste if you take the time to do it right, but it may not be worth the power vs the time. And thats my list but who knows how much ill have to cut out, because right now im about 1500ish off that goal, and thats not including shorties and dyno time, and the injector swap, cuz i think if i get a good number out of the motor i may be pushing the 19# injectors.

Not really. My friend(who is not the smartest person in the world) is using stock injectors with a perfect a/f ratio of 11.8 with a 125 shot. Not condoning it but i dont think that you'll have a problem with that setup making no more than 300rwhp. Might be maxing them out but dont think its necessary to upgrade injectors if its not in the budget.

it may not be but i might make it part of the budget, because some part of my system isnt working right, and i think its the injectors, so instead of risking 5k worth of new stuff i just figure 300ish bucks for injectors not a bad investment. if i can swing it ima upgrade injector, MAF and replace even if its factory the cops, that way no question that my fuel and spark delivery will be up to the task. just not worth risking a brand new set up for a few hundred bucks. and somthing is deff wrong with what i have now so meh
