I need someone to give the most specific details on the internals of this engine such as rod length,what kind of pistons to use flat top? d-shape? what do I use? If you have any rebuild tips let me know thanks

Rods are the standard Ford 2.3L OHC using pressed-in pins (stock length is 5.2"). The proper pistons are a D-shaped dish forged piston that provides an 8:1 static compression ratio. There are an assortment of long rod/short forged piston kits available in various static compression ratios.

What is your intended use for this engine, your budget, desired power level and desired RPM range? What fuel will you be using?
