pretty sure its 2200 for the pistons and rods, or 4600 for the complete shortblock, correct?

I'd love this set-up, just didnt think it would be such a difference when I just sold my new turbo tuff rods and pistons, for only half these cost. I know its not at all off the shelf, can you explain whats done to the pistons on this set-up? thanks

any group buy options being planned?

Rods yes. Pistons are something new.

Oh, and sloped floor to promote more barrel swirl.

Things can always be made lighter but lighter isn't free. I think the Honey Badger is a good balance of value and performance, which is something that TIC and myself were working to balance out for you guys.

If we really wanted to go super light; titanium rods and berylium piston could be an option but most guys won't want to pay approx $5k per cylinder

Now, Micah - you and I both know it won't be 5k per cylinder. Realistically only about 4.8k.

that is a thought....

I have not pushed them hard for a couple of reasons. I only ordered 10 sets of rods and pistons, and they are going pretty fast. I don't want to push it too much out there and then get flooded with orders that I can't fill for a long time. I'm also holding off a bit as I want people to see numbers and get them more excited about it.
