    svturbo: Ross pistons can be bought from duratecperformance.com. They are 8.5:1 compression and if Nikolas still has a set in stock they are $600 I think. The skirts on the pistons have to be slightly modified. You may want to contact Keyser over on contour.org about some Diamond pistons. He can make them for any compression you want. Pauter rods are about $1100 from pauter.com. Your gonna have to rehone the engine with the new pistons. For a rehone and balancing, it was about $600. Federal Mogul and Clevite 77 bearings are $70 a set. One thing about a turbo, is the hotter the exhaust is, the more energy your going to have to spool it. By putting header wrap on, it keeps the heat within the pipes instead of being completely dissipated. I bought a 100'x2" role for about $100. Its not a cheap project. Ive got well over $13,000 into mine. If you need any help building up your 3.0L, check out buckshotmotorsports.com. Rick built up my short block for me. mrtapdatazz4u, as mentioned already in my list of modifications and within the guestbook, the whole bodykit is from an svt contour. Rear fascia and side skirts are a direct bolt up. Front fascia took some serious bodywork to make it fit. Im also running an mirko splitter
