Eagle sux....very hard to balance and you will spend the difference in price just to get them balanced.
Mahle is a good piston..I went with CP personally. Callies Compstar or Dragonslayer is a good crank.

oh I looked up Callies but only seen mahle pistons on there.. are to go through site..

search google and found the callies.. Dragonslayer seems cool. I wish people would update pages and say LS3. Most list all the LS series but LS3 so I am never sure what will work.
I am trying to get info what is good and what are the prices. Before I do anymore mods I want to rebuild bottom end. Will take awhile got to pay off bills... Takes for help. I am going to save callies to favorties.

Any plans on a supercharger or turbo?

at 500wHP you could of left stock assembly for the time being.

I am thinking I am going to get the HP itch again so I want something good for 800wHP to have cushion room.

Who out there pushing the eagle parts to their limit?

Here's what I'm looking at for the winter upgrade; Eagle or Callies crank with Diamond or Wiseco pistons, will probably stick with the same rods as crank manufacturer.
If I can't drive it during the winter, I might as well be modding it
Still deciding on CR since all we have is 91 octane here.

Think I'll suscribe and see where this thread goes.

Checkout our site, we offer complete assembled short-blocks or rotating assemblies. We use mostly Callies/Callies/Wiseco in our assemblies.

I don't trust eagle stuff.... i hear a lot of hit/miss stories, especially with the rods.

The way I see it, if you are dumping $4,000+ into a short block... why bother skimping out a few hundred bucks to get the cheap chinese made stuff?

the eagle/mahle combo has been known to be the "most budget oriented forged rotating assembly"
