    ok a lot has gone wrong with my suspension in the past week im nearly through my turbo build but i think if i put anymore stress on these buses something might give way,
    thus i am kinda stopping the turbo build until i work my suspension

    in regaurds to fuel pressure reg im a strong believer in a rising rate adjustable fuel pressure reg on any forced induction engine , but from a few setups here and over sea's ( bob , pjf_lude and pacman ) they all have boosted setups and running stock oem fuel pressure reg's with no problems at all . so its entirely up to you which way you go , in regaurds to running E85 if your serious about using this fuel than best you start building a race engine with decent H-Beam rods , some darton sleeves , low comp forged pistons and a high quality ring kit , hardened race main and rod bearings etc etc , this fuel is the new wonder race fuel and is amazing with the power it can make with great protection to detenation/knock , but the down size is you need to use twice the amount of fuel to get the power from it . i'll use my setup as a example its only a 2.0ltr twin cam B20A6 with 1mm over sized pistons , forged billet internals though out , .051" MLS head gasket , ARP studs thru out , new oil pump , water etc etc , $2500 worth of port work with heavier/stronger valve springs , port matched inlet manifold with enlargened plenuim and a port matched h22 throttle body , over sized custom twin feed fuel rail , walbro 255LPH (500hp) lift pump , 3ltr surge tank , bosch 044 315LPH (700hp) main pump , upgraded 3/8 fuel lines , bosch 1680cc (168LB) indy blue injectors which might have to be upgraded to 2000cc (200LB) ID injectors if the indys cant be controlled at idle . i have a current fuel system rated to 1300hp but im only chasing 600fwhp on E85 . be prepared to spend spend SPEND if your wanting to run E85 . have a think about it mate .

    What I am getting( help me out on what brands are better or where I can get a better deal )

    Energy suspension kit which includes every bush besides rear trailing arm (apparently)
    Rear trailing arm bushes (energy suspension)
    Rear sway bar
    Front sway bar (both getting custom made by a friend at fulcrum suspension)
    Cv shafts
    Koni adjustables with eibach ground control spring and sleeve.
    4x TR series rotors

    looking into rods and pistons atm, it seems very difficult unless you go mahle gold series if you dont want to re sleeve
    im just worried about re sleeving to 89mm if something goes wrong then im kinda ****ed

    tossing up between mahle gold series and only6 ish psi
    or wesico pistons and K1 rods at 9:1 comp so i can run higher boost.
    so mad at this

    So the mahle gold series pistons with the eagle rods that it comes with should be fine? Cause I believe the wesico
    Rods don't work with the mahle pistons because of the expansion rates..?

    Not a big fan of Eagle rods. I went with Pauter rods.
    I have a stock block (no sleeves) with the Mahle pistons and will be running 15-20psi no problem with higher compression.

    It's already been run up to 10psi.

    what do you mean when you say "no sleeves"?

    He means it has stock sleeves. As in the lack of a steel replacement sleeves.
