Hey John! This forum is for posting help questions about the site just so you know!
BUT you should start a build thread and ask in that!
Good luck man.

pistons will always be the best way to go, anyone will tell you that, but ive heard of stock vr6 bottom ends with a head gasket spacer running 15k miles plus! i would definately use arp head studs if you go spacer tho!

Moved to the correct forum. I say go pistons - more $ but worth it. How many miles on the motor?

There are guys running 400+ with a head spacer. That's my goal with the 42# injectors. are you going to be using some sort of software or stand alone?
