    Not I......I just can't remember if he broke seb AU's stock bottom end record.

    As far as I am concerned the limit of the stock short block has yet to be found. X-man is making ridiculous power. My ebay piston'd motor I built 4 years ago is still kicking and I can't even begin to tell you what that thing has gone through. The compression on it is 167-170 on every cylinder as of two weekends ago. HKS or greddy gasket and arp studs should be the only aftermarket parts needed in your rebuild. If your motor blew up you did something wrong in the rebuild or the management end of things.

    Might see if we can't up the limits even more this weekend.

    You mean to tell me that the majority of the issues with the 7m has been user induced? But it CAN'T BE. The 7m is a craptacular BHG proned motor!!!

    I know arp studs are a must with a mhg, but are arp main and rod bolts worthit when running on a stock bottom end?

    No. New, properly torqued Toyota stuff will hold up just fine.
