budget? rebuilt internals to forged would allow fair amount of boost to be added, giving more powa

you need to take it a speed shop, it sounds like you aren't aware of your hp numbers already. I doubt it would take much more to get you there. You don't need to tighten up the bottom end if you stay at 450 at the wheels or under.

It is better to remain silent and be thought of a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

if hes looking at spending some money, he might as well forge, it and go above the 450 mark

what's it at now? You can easily do a pulley and retune to up the power...good fuel, common sense and the tune are the keys to longevity of a blown motor...don't skimp on any

Well you are going to want to know for sure, there is a big difference between the two. Take a picture and post it. We will know which one it is.

If it is a M90 400rwhp is about the absolute maximum you will get out of it with all the tricks. I see most M90s making between 365-375rwhp.
