frown Where do you get performance parts for 4.0L?

Hi all.

I'm currently rebuilding and turbocharging an EF 4.0L and would like to know where I can get performance parts for it. I'm usually playing with Clevelands so I'm a bit lost here.

I'd to get (if possible):
1. Main stud kit
2. Head stud kit
3. Rod bolts (ARP?)
4. Low comp hypereutectic pistons - around 8.0:1 preferably
5. Oversized valves.

Any info would ge greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Chris

Re: Where do you get performance parts for 4.0L?

you will need to mod the block a bit to use arp main studs, because to 4l uses metric main bolts, ARP dont make metric bolts... cant be sure on the head stud issue. also, you will need to use aftermarket rods, or mod the std ones to get the ARP bolts to fit them... cos they to are metric too.

eb6, t5, stg3 crow, chip, ceramic button clutch, pacemakers, 2.5in stainless, unifilter pod, ported head, thermos, pedders s/low, LSD.... 144.5rwkw so far

Re: Where do you get performance parts for 4.0L?

you can buy the whole turbo setup from TSA for $4995. I dont know what internals it includes, but the kit includes everything to get forced induction happpening, including the turbo/manifolds etc.

it depends how wild you wanna go in terms of boost...obviously the more boost, the more work has to be done to the internals.
