On my hybrid build up, im thinking about swapping my fmic, i was currently running a greddy gc8 fmic, but now since my set up is different im a have to re-do my IC piping, so im thinking maybe going abit bigger.

Cp 100mm pistons
Eagle i beam rods
Stock sti crank
Sohc heads
Cobb street performer cams
Cobb springs and titanium retainers
3angle valve job

100mm.... good luck on a rebuild...

But I'm building my halves now.

EJ257- Halves
99.5mm STD Manley Pistons 9:5:1
Manley Rods
Heat Treated OEM Crank
Kings Bearings

Haven't figured out heads yet. I'll be anywhere from 300-600whp

A few of the locals here are running 100mm making between 4-500whp with no issues, all built by Bertune, same builder as mine, but yeah i've read the reviews, but i got them for free. So they went in.

What fmic u running,

True I think i just lucked out with my block needing no machine work at all but maybe a 1/10 of a hone for standard pistons.

Mine will be custom made by a local shop seeing how I'll probably run a relocated turbo.

Ah, my piping will have to be custom due to the rotated set up im running, would hate to hack up my greddy fmic kit, would rather sell it and get a bigger mount while still retaining the fogs

Personally i would sell it, to fund for a custom set up. At least from that point you are starting fresh and also not having to deal with a headache.
