ST220 was RFF non-VCT.
Say hello to the first new part of my 3-3.5" SS cat-back exhaust. I finally gave in. I'm going to remove my Borla cat-back and recreate it with 3-3.5" T304 stainless steel. I'll buy new Borla mufflers and a Borla resonator. As an added perk I'm also going to install an electric cutout to provide more flow at the track.
Well my old engine builder that did my Camaro's engine doesn't work with the new age engines. They prefer and continue to work on the old 350's. So Competition Engines of Eagan, MN is out for me. After calling around and talking with a lot of repetable shops I've chosen Wagamon Brothers to hone out the block and balance my rotating assembly. Their V6 performance guy was out today, but I will be calling back tomorrow and making an appointment to meet with him in person this Friday. Based on our discussions I will be making the decision on my rod and piston combo. I may have them do my head work too as a one stop shop
I like your choice of doing something different with the tips. Is your plan to cut out some of the bumper?
I was always thinking of some D shape tips with the flat side on the bottom so it was flush with the valance.

Alright it is decided after discussing my build with Wagamon Brothers performance tech they recommend the K1 rods with either Wiseco pistons or CP pistons.
So I most likely will be finalizing the build with them this Friday. I will be buying the rods (depending on price) through them because they should be able to get a better price then I can on my own (unless someone wants to do a GB ). Wagamon will be honing out the block and balancing the rotating assembly for me. Depending on the time line of the custom pistons the engine should be in the shop not later then Dec. 14th.
Things are starting to come together
