I recently implemented an aftermarket intake and JDM headers and noticed my top end improve. Now I'm trying to improve my bottom end. (lower rpm's) I was told that if i changed out my crankshaft and my connecting rods with a beefed up one it will get me to what i want. Is that a true myth? If so, where can i find a good crankshaft kit that ships overseas? If im gonna change my crankshaft i might as well change out my bearing and connecting rods. If this rumor is NOT true, how do i get that torque on my bottom end. I am looking for a constant power band across. (low rpms and high rpms) I really don't want to put a turbo in just yet. I want to see how much i can get out of this engine before the turbo. I'm in the process of changing my camshaft and putting in a stage two. I know that if I put a stage three on, i might as well get a turbo. but like i said not just yet. So i want to play with the crankshaft. any ideas and comments will be great before i spend the money and ruin my engine. Please leave a link or a place for me to find the aftermarket crankshaft kit. Thanks in advance..
