This is a great deal! It is a complete STREET Rotating Assembly for 4.6 Ford Modular Engine SOHC or DOHC. It includes the following TOP OF THE LINE parts for your HIGH Horsepower Engine:

Whatever you do, do this: Do not have the sleeves cut to the advertis :hy: ed dimensions. Buy your pistons and rings. Have the machinist number and measure each one, then cut each sleeve to match the ACTUAL diameter of each of the pistons and rings. You will end up with a far superior engine this way. As far as what size to go?...go all the way! While you've got it apart, do it right! Don't forget to compensate for your engine's new found glory. A lot of builders forget that a hopped-up motor will also need increased oil flow, as well as a few other modifications. Don't do the engine until you can afford to do it right. It will cost less in the long run...
