Over the last four years, I have been putting together my setup. Began with a cheap turbo setup, but decide to to it right the first time.

The eagle rods can hold 400+ and cost much less. They are the way to go.
Also, I would try to say with .020" overbore on the pistons. most machinists will recommend not to go .040" overbore when doing a boosted ka.
If you plan on turning higher RPMs then build the head, if not, then there's no need.
Just a couple tips. Looks good so far!

I always wonder about the power capabilities of eagle rods. I honestly think its far more than they say it is. I've never seen them break before. The only forged rod i've ever seen distorted was a crower, i forget what car it was in. But i know the rod bent, and he was still making passes with it, pulled the motor apart for some unrelated reason and realized it was bent lol. Idk, i wouldnt be surprised if you can get 800 out of em.

Yeah im most likely going with the eagle rods I haven't heard much of any bad feedback on them.

and, if they ever fail, they bend instead of snapping. thats a plus in my book.

What issues are you experiencing? Is the compressor housing hitting the PS line bolt?
Fri Jan 15, 2016 9:35 am
Power steering line is hitting the manifold. Tried a AN fitting but since I still have a/c line I can't use it.

That is a sick swap, gorgeous R32 chassis. Its one of my midlife crisis cars : )
Does the R32 bay have more room than the S chassis?
Wed Feb 27, 2019 4:33 pm
LMAO!! HELL NO!!! a while back a did a custom turbo kit in a R32 GT-R and....a s13 definitely has more room between the strut towers than the R chassis. Huge pain trying to stuff everything while keeping AC and PS. You’d think it would be the other way around since the R chassis is larger than our S-chassis...
Tue Mar 05, 2019 6:39 am
sadness.... would have through there would be more room. Glad to see there are still some old school guys active on the board
