I wouldn't do it. If you want more torque just spray it more.

$1800 isn't going to even get you started in that direction. More like $5000 by the time you get the new billet crank, good rods, and pistons.

They'll have them when they get some more. Hopefully they will ramp up the bbf production.

I would say no.

First I would decide what I want to do with the combo. I saw on the other site about you asking about a single turbo and now you want even more cubes?

Callies has one 4.75 crank left but there is an issue with one of the journals, nothing that will effect durability they say. They discounted to around $1500 if I remember right. I have the pic if someone can load it.
