Yep, they'll be fine. Just pay attention to which rod bolts you have, there are two different torque specs depending on the type of bolt.

IIRC, the difference is in the shank of the bolt in between the threads and the head.

One looks like this (the bolt on the right)...

...and the other type looks like a regular bolt.

Off of the top of my head, I can't remember which one gets torqued more, but I know I've seen it in one of the LS1 books floating around out there.
