does anyone have dyno numbers of before and after a built bottom end or any links to them?
Jim Swantko said:A built bottom end won't make more power. It is stronger so you can push it harder (more boost, etc)... but there shouldn't be any significant difference between a stock motor and a built bottom end motor with everything else being equal.
For power... build the top end. Heads and boost make power... strong internals just live to tell about it.
Yes boring and stroking (increasing dispalcement will make more power. Lighter rods will let you rev faster and higher... if you have the valvetrain to suport it.jeremy haakonso said:
But why go one bore up if you don't need itjeremy haakonso said:

Higher compression will make more power... but high compression and turbos/SCs (boost) don't go together.
