The weakest link is usually the Rods (95 % of the time or better) and rod bolts. Pretty much any 4340 forged rod is gonna handle 500 easily. The pistons are Manley Street Master .020 over bore.

I went with Oliver billiet with arp 2000's so I have no need for any of that stuff.

Also saw you bought something that goes bang. By the way, I think I found a guy to make my headers. He's doing the same swap in a 98 4x4 and can match em to his that hes fabbing up.

Oh yeah still waiting on heads from the machine shop...

Jferg is wanting to stick with a gentle hone of cylinder bore instead of going ***** out and doing .20 over haha

Hopefully Jferg's walls are in great shape mine were about .010 out, so I went with the popular and easy to find .020 bore.

My builder bored and hot tanked the whole thing for 100 bucks. So was well worth it to me.

Nah, i don't know jack squat about swapping a 4v in Nor do i have a parts list for that. The other list I made was just from experience. Sorry!

I've got the h beams with arp bolts (8740s I think)
What'd the Manley's pistons run you? I will be ordering the same Mahle's as myfx4 but 16cc instead of flattop of course.

Hopefully yes. It will need bored after Looking more closely before I wrapped it up. I just need to pick up these lightning parts parts and strike a deal for a core.

Doesn't Manley offer a .010 piston option though?

I went with manley flat tops, not mahle. Mahle is just as reputable as manley if not better just from reading reviews.
