Thanks bud!aljordan said:Shot peened stock rods have done 813 to the wheels. Stock rods are good for whatever you can throw at them.
well if you want you can Email me Jeff.... i will tell you. All i can say is its gonna be a very custom application and these guys are very up to the job and hand.SupraSport.com said:Trey, why did you choose Cunningham if there are others off the shelf?
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 cylinderSupraTrey said:
Edit: Just re-read the post...... hey Ron glad to hear you use these rods.... what are your opinions/suggestions on them....thanks bud.
