OK, let me back up a bit.
I got to thinking about it today, and all that info is not entirely accurate, and since Im no expert, I dont want you getting the wrong ideas of things. So you have my apologies for the above posts....
I forgot the first rule of perf...build the low end first. Dmax rods can handle most anything up to 550rwhp, but anything above that, you're really playing with fire. Since he wants a reliable
600+rwhp, here goes a revised list:
1) Intake, exhaust, lift pump/pickup, good EFILive tune
(Carillo, Crower, R&R, Howards), possibly cut pistons
3) Aurora 5000 or comparible turbo, with Diamond Eye downpipe
4) Dual CP3s
5) Built trans, Suncoast 4 equivalent preferred.
Theres probably something I've forgotten, so I highly recommend calling the following people for help:
