    what brands/parts do you guys recomend for a good reliable build up? I took out a loan for 8K to build the motor and boost it.

    Right now i have-
    B20z2 block with si head and GSR tranny
    Portflow dual valve springs
    aem cam gears
    clutch masters flywheel
    clutch masters stage 1 clutch
    RC310 CC injectors
    Aem fuel rail

    i am looking at a drag 3 turbo kit
    84.5mm pistons
    rods
    block gaurd
    possibly aem ems if i have enough
    ti valve spring retainers
    JDM GSR LSD
    getting the block balanced

    anything else i should consider? what brands are best? any help would be great. i have 8k to play with and i want this to be solid and trouble free

    personally i have faith in ferrea top end, but when i was gonna build mine, i was going to match all top and bottom end components, i was gonna use crower. grab another stage of clutch, make sure you match your clutch to a minimum of your expected power. whats it goin in outta curiousity? i'm personally using Gator axels for my high power app.

    If you have 8 grand, you can probably afford to go with an overbore and darton sleeves. That would allow you to run a LOT more boost.

    its being built for my freind dans 2000 SI we had the motor in and running but a valve adjustment nut came loose and shot through the motor ending up in the oil pan and now it is making a ticking noise so he decided this is as good of time as any to get a loan and finish the build.
