HMM, I was under the impression the journal size was the same as my current crankshaft. I'll check into that.

JBL930 - That sounds trick but a couple of friends of mine over here have run 30+psi on their street turbo motors ( one is a 3.2 with stock 3.3 turbo P&C's). His engine ran fine for over 7 years and only after a mishap did it crack a cylinder. That car has made numerous 1/4 mile runs at 140mph and has been down the 1 mile coarse at 194mph. While solid parts are a must I do believe octane and a proper tune are paramount as a stock piston will handle a clean 700hp but the best piston in the world will fail under detonation at 500hp
