    Ok right now I basically have a stock type r b18c. I'm in the process of getting the block sleeved n bored to 2.0.. Now I want to go turbo when the block comes back, does anyone have ideas on this kinda built. Like what kid of piston or rods i should run ect .. I'm trying to aim for 600 or 700 hp hopefully

    700 hp is no joke of a build. $$$$$$$$$ in supporting parts. Asking what kind of pistons and rods to use tells me you haven't done this before and don't really know what you're getting yourself in to.

    So, lets start with the basics.... what fuel are you going to run?

    Gas 120 octane, n i see its no joke man. I've been doing research it's going to cost me, but the bulid going to be a over the winter build. So I'll have time to put some money together. N I'll be satisfied around 500 to 550hp honestly...

    I'm always entertained by big power builds, but nobody EVER finishes them. Is this going to be a track only car? I mean a legit drag monster?

    wiseco pistons and eagle rods are pretty popular combinations as well.

    Well, if you want to make serious power, you're going to want more than 9:1
    9:1 is safer/easier to tune but you'e going to have a much harder time making serious power with that lower compression.

    Keep in mind, a piston is merely part of the compression calculation. the numbers on them represent 'stock' other things, which you simply won't be capable of running at these desired power levels.
    bore, stroke, head gasket thickness, head design/combustion chamber CC, piston design (dome or dish), deck clearance all contribute to total compression.

    If you go 9:1 piston, and then throw a thick headgasket on, you're in the 8's. mill the head, you're in the high 9s. etc etc
