Are you chasing 300hp at the wheels or flywheel?
What will the car predominantly be used for?
What sort of compromises in power delivery can you live with?
What's your budget?
Have you thought about these questions? Have you discussed them with your engine builder?
Regardless of how good he is at building motors these are things you should discuss before any work commences. For example you could potentially end up with a motor set up for drag racing when you want to compete in lap sprints.
There are plenty of us on here who have been through this with CA18DETs and there is a lot more to it than simply throwing a set of forged pistons and a rebuild kit at it.
