A ? for the few that have built kick ass 3SGTE mod engines. If I was going to, able to get my 90 3SGTE, 148k miles engine machined in town, what parts would make a kick ass smooth running street All Trac using stock US harness and ECU? Crank, rods and pistons? Cylinder head? Cams? Using stock turbo. Possibly what aftermarket intake if there are any. Using big intercooler.

Not for beating a new vette at the drag strip, just a kick ass street driving All Trac. Dont want to spend $6k. Just use my original spare engine to really make it kick ass. If possible. Maybe its a dumb question, IDK. Thanks,

Stock internals are plenty strong for anything the factory turbo puts out, just make sure it gets a full recondition (rods resized, polished, peened). Some higher lift cams with minimal duration would be a nice bonus. I'd leave everything else powertrain alone and invest in the chassis. (I would take the turbine housing off and send it out to get ported)

Honestly, if you are considering getting your bottom end done, search around for a gen 3 EFI swap. Its good for alot more power, and still has stock reliability. And really all you have to do is repin the ECU connector...
