Hey Guys, I have a 1995 Z28 M6. I am building a 383 at the moment and looking to make it a boost friendly motor. I already have the 383 kit with eagle crank and rods and speed pro pistons but recently bought a procharger and not sure if my combo is right for boost.. Any suggestions on Pistons selection to get lower compression. Also a good head selection for boost, I was planning going to go with a lloyd elliot stage 2 heads and custom cam. Any input would be great Thanks

first off.... how much boost are you looking in to run?

1) your pistons and piston rings will have to do a lot here to withstand boost...
2) 4 bolt mains will come handy and will give a piece of mind
3) a boosted application design head gasket is a must
4) I wouldnt go over 10:1 compression ratio even with 5psi.
5) if its a cast crank dont even think about boost, specially with eagle rotating assemblies, I have seen this cranks split in half without even having a higher compression ratio or over revving.
6) your tune will be the most important part on your build, have a professional tuner design one for you application and specs
7) which cam are you thinking about using, custom grind? off the shelf?
8) fuel injectors are a must at least 34# or higher
9) fuel pump upgrade is a must
10) what octane levels are around your area can change the whole story
