Hi. I have a 98 from a ls400. I love the engine I have it swap in to my is200. I got some thick rods from a older 1uz. Look to know has anyone fitted the older rods to the vvti pistons and ran boost. I know I set of forged pistons would be best but if the standard pistons or good with thicker rods.
only plan on 450-500.

With good tune you could pull it off. Your injectors wont handle it so you will def need bigger ones.
