I'm halfway between a decent build and a budget build. I refuse to aim for that power mark on a stock bottom end... but I won't go "all out" and build something that is going to be capable of 600 hp when I don't plan on putting that down. Starting out with a full B18B (no, not doing lsvtec)... this is my plan. I'm going to at least have the block hot tanked and surfaces decked, as well as having the cylinders posted. Cheaper alternative to sleeving it and I don't want to deal with the non-cooling issues that block guards can cause. I am thinking CP pistons, Eagle rods, ARP rod bolts, new seals and bearings obviously. MLS head gasket, ARP head studs, Crower cams, crower valvetrain, Ferrera valves, and of course, the head will recieve a PnP. Some people are telling me "no just have the block sleeved". For those of you who DO actually know what posting is... please let me know if you fully agree with me in that 400 hp should be easily attainable with 9:1 compression, the build listed above, and say 18 - 20 psi through a GT35R.
