Default Needing info for engine build coming up soon!

I have a few questions on my upcoming motor build as I see my 120k mile factory bottom end won't be liking the whole forced induction thing. My truck is an 03. As of right now I have inertia's 214/218 cam and ported, polished, milled performance heads. I've got a PT7675 ill be pitting on soon. My future build will be a 5.7 base 370ci, I've spoken with Scat several times and have most of the kinks worked out on the rotating assembly.
So here's the questions; mind you I will be building this myself

•I'm wanting to run the performance Eagle heads, for their flowing capabilities. What all would I need to put these heads on an 03-05 block?

•Also, what intake manifold would I have to run? And are there any aftermarket manifolds out there?

•head studs or bolts? Does any body have any input on rod bolts or crank cap studs?

•does anyone have any other ideas or upgrades they'd like to suggest?

•what can a factory bottom hold as far a power?

PS; I've ran E-85 on some other turbo builds I've done, but from what I hear we cannot really advance the timing too much what's up with that?


Thanks Pat

I'd just forge the bottom end with a 6.1 crank k1 rods and wiseco pistons. Slap on some eagle heads and a 6.1 intake

pretty much this with head studs at a minimum. I'd go with ARP everything if you can and/or depending on how much boost you have planned.

K1 rods for for a 6.1? And what can the 6.1 crank hold hp wise?
