I just bought a 96 GT with the 1.8. I removed the engine and have completely torn it apart. So here is my dlemma.

I am going to build a killer engine from the bottom up, boost it, intercool it, and be very meticulous(probably spelled wrong) about it so starting at the crank does anyone have any suggestions.

I should call this Project FEOA

I am also going to have detailed pics and list parts and prices as I go.

Any suggestions on my bottom end...........

lighten and balance the crankshaft, have a shop shot peen the rods (this'll compress the metal & make them even stronger than they already are since they're forged), then have the shop weigh all the pistons and have them shave bits off so ALL the pistons/rods are the EXACT same weight. Then you'll want to find a lighter flywheel.

I'm willing to bet this alone will gain you 5-10 hp and it will allow your car to rev A LOT quicker. :wink:
