I would say Tomei because I have one and it will be for sale soon :)
Was your 900+ wbhp achieved on said tomei kit? Rb Motorsport say they are only good to 750 bhp, there was a post a while back, and that is what they posted

No, that was with a oem crank.

I can not see why Tomei cranks would be weaker.

Also interesting about this question. It appears my forged motor needs to be removed again for ringland problems, so I was thinking stroker.

Tomei is the cheaper kit at 3.7k us. However, BC crower and spool import make a 2.9 ( should I notice the extra 50-60cc over the tomei ?) for about 1.5k more ( but I know a few retailer who will have 10-15% sales from times to time which bring the price down to about 1k difference.

Just curious if the extra price is worth it ? I guess if the crankshaft is better quality + you get an extra 50cc, it might be worth it.. please help me :)

How much performance do you gain in terms of low to mid range torque, and peak power? How many RPM sooner would you achieve full boost?

I have -9's and stock cams and am considering a stroker kit to improve off boost performance.

Thanks

Step 3 kit is real nice. Have one in mine.
Only bad bit is the oil rings are a pain in the backside to get in the block. Tried with an alloy tapered ring tool and after breaking 2 had to buy a full new set of ring at £300. My 20 year old draper clockwork spring tool worked a treat.

Tomei 2.8 kit is a forged crank not billet, good for street kit not high RPM 700hp is safe.

Even though you are talking 2.8 kits I do like the sound of the old Trust 2.7 and a nice set of step 2 Tomei Procams ... the best sound :)

Is the forging the problem or something else?

I ask because people seem to make much more than 700bhp (and high rpm) with OEM cranks which are (I beleive) forged.

Just curious, but are these kits full sets of internals replacements? ie would you need to replace anything else in the process or is it a holistic kit good for 750hp (minus turbos obviously).

It wont be the forging as a forging of the same material as a billet crank is stronger. It comes down to material choice and Heat treatment selection etc.

Funny nobody has picked up that the Tomei forged 8 counter 2.8L crankshaft is a factory Nissan forging that is machined with a 77.7mm stroke as opposed to the factory stroke of 73.7mm.
