I can rebuild what i have with arp rod and crank bolts and change pistons to get the 10-1 i need or change the crank for more cubes , truck is a toy but I want to street drive it and track it as well in the summer , does 500hp seem outa reach for this ? Is a 150 shot going to blow it up? there seem to be some cheap rotating assemblies out there with crank rods and pistons but im lost as what to do
