Shot peened stock rods have done 813 to the wheels. Stock rods are good for whatever you can throw at them.

So Trey, What you're trying to do is lower your compression ratio, or speed up your acceleration, am I right. That's all I can really see using shorter rods would be beneficial for, as, it is going to shorten your stroke, if I am correct. If I'm wrong, someone let me know, but it sounds like Trey is trying to streamline his engine for a drag racing application. I'm very interested in hearing what this project yields Trey. And as long as I'm replying, I like crower.

They are very stout rods. I have the rifle drill option (drilled along the beam for pressurized piston pin oiling) which was like 30 more for each rod, IIRC. Make sure you specify your cylinder bore size, so the rods' big ends' will slide thru the cylinder :)

remember that its not HP that kills a rod....its piston speed (i.e. revs).
:stupid:

stock rod will work fine, aftermarket is just as strong if not stronger but less weight being slung around on the rotating assembly. It'll hold up better, but stock rods will do the job just fine..

Here is the best book I have ever read about engines. Its for mopars, but it applies to all engines. It gets into all kinds of great stuff. Then again, I'm partial to mopars.

the shorter rods are going to fit my application becuase im stroking the motor even more..... it will be about a 3.23liter when i done. Compression ratio will be right around 8. There is more details but im kinda keeping it on the DL till i get done.... gotta leave something up for suprise right..... :)
