Default Possible Internal Upgrades?

I wnat to learn about upgrading your engine internals to make it perform better, including pistons, seals, cylinders etc. I have no clue about it though. I know you can bore out your engine to make your pistions/cylinders bigger, but other than that i have no clue. I would HIGHLY appreciate it if someononne could tell me all the differnt things you could do to your enigne interals to get better performance. Yeah it seems like a Noob question, but i guess i am a noob in this deparmtent. Thanks all

By non-NA I assume you have to mean forced induction? (turbo, supercharger)

Well, unfortunately I doubt you're going to find an engineer on here that can explain to you the different design techniques used in pistons to control the combustion event. A basic general aspect I can tell you is a positive CC (dome) raises compression and is used in NA motors, and a negative CC (dish) lowers compression and is used with FI. That's about all I know other than the difference between cast pistons (OEM) and forged pistons (aftermarket). Forged are stronger and lighter.

OEM rods are cast also. OEM cranks are forged.

No offense intended, and no need to feel bad (we all started at the same place), but I think you need to do a little research of your own at this point.
