Connecting rods are different on an L67 and then all the top end stuff is different

Just a quick note, you can use the L36 connecting rods but the L67 ones are stronger. I've seen quite a few people on forums with top swapped L36s and I haven't heard of any bottom ends blowing out yet.

Hmm, it is tempting but I think I would be better off with just getting another engine and selling what I have here. I appreciate all the help I can get on this. If you have seen my other cars you know this is a whole other world for me. I would love to see some photos or build ups of a turbo charged version. I have a (few) spare turbos and external wastegates and intercoolers and stuff but have no idea what intake would work ect... Thanks so much guys, I posted on the GTP forums and those guys were rather reluctant to help at all

Just remember you CAN use the L36 rods, just don't be putting it into high RPMs all the time (every now and then at the track is fine, just not every day)
