As everybody knows, voodoos love boost but tend to be living on borrowed time with the stock bottom end (yes, i know your brother’s friend’s uncle has one that’s been boosted on a SBE for years without a problem). But most people who build motors for their boosted Shelbys go ahead and sleeve the motor when doing rods/pistons, but is it really necessary? Yes, the walls are thinner than a coyote but has anybody seen a boosted voodoo have failures due to the block itself? All the blown engines that I have seen have been because of a rod or piston failure, never the crank or the block. So if someone where to keep power under 1000 tire, wouldn’t a set of rods/pistons designed for boost and some ARP studding be a reliable setup?
