Default A.J.'s Wagon. 8374, IAG Closed deck, 1/2" head studs, GSC Billet cams, WPC treatment

Wanted to start a build thread to keep track of what's going on with the wagon. I recently had an engine failure with my last setup (cracked cylinder #4) and decided it was time to build something a little more bullet proof. I had been talking to J.J. (IAG) for a while about their closed deck design and head studs that they have been working on. I ended up pulling the trigger on IAG's "stage 4" short block. After some research, I decided that I wanted to have some internals wpc treated. I had IAG ship a brand new set of ACL main/rod bearing, New oem 79mm crank, and wrist pins to WPC. After having my D25 heads ported/bowl blended by Ruben at SoCal porting, I shipped my heads to IAG to have them rebuild them. I decided that since I'm doing porting, I might as well upgrade to some more aggressive cams. Which was perfect timing, since GSC was just releasing their new Billet S2 AVCS cams.

So that's where I'm at now. The long block is together, now it's time to decide which turbo I'm going to use. I'm leaning towards a twin scroll EFR 8374, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

Here's the engine specs!
Short block:
IAG closed deck ej25
WPC treated oem crank
Manley turbo tuff I-beam rods
IAG spec Manley 99.75 8.5:1 Pistons (WPC treated wrist pins)
WPC treated ACL Race main/rod bearings

Heads:
D25 single AVCS heads
"Stage 2.5" porting by Ruben @ SoCal Porting
GSC Billet AVCS S2 cams
GSC single beehive valve springs/ +1mm valves
IAG 1/2" ARP2000 head studs
JE Proseal head gaskets

and here I am still with a stock semi closed deck and H-beams I have to get with the times

I'm interested in how the 1/2" ARP2000 studs perform I would think the ultimate combo would be 1/2" ARP625s

I don't think they will have a problem with the arp2000's, but we will see!

That's what I meant... No need to swap because the arp 2000 1/2 stud will hold high hp... I don't see the point of your post.... Sorry I really can't tell if you are trolling lol.

Not trolling, I agree with you. I don't think they will have any issues with the 1/2" arp200

Received some pictures from Full-Race today! The kit is off to coating now.





I recommend getting in contact with Jon Guerra at full race. He has been very helpful with answering questions and responding quickly.

I went with Full-Race too. I was worried about bugging/bothering them (Jon Guerra to be honest) when I asked how things were going. Have to admit, I didn't get any pictures like you though.

I felt bad for bugging them too, but the wait was killing me and I had to see how it was coming along. I just want to hurry up and finish this thing
