Hey guys, this forum thread has been inactive since 2008 but I wanted to send a reply just in case.

Ive been searching all over the forums and the web with regard to building a FI 4GR FSE engine and I have seen so many idiots yammering all over Club Lexus about how it's impossible, and make their claim with very little factual information.

I was curious if you folks have figured out how to boost this engine with the complex EMS and high compression ratio. Have any of you had luck with superchargers? Any thoughts or suggestions you can pass along?

With regard to the pistons, I too was wondering if they were forged or not. What are the specs around the hypereutectic pistons? From my understanding, if the material grade is strong enough to withstand heavy pressure / combustion, it shouldn't matter if it's forged or cast. Since I know too little about hypereutectic pistons, I was wondering what your thoughts were.
