With new ARP bolts, they should support up to 700 hp. Oh yea, and polish the beams.

I no a guy that has a pulling truck and he spins it at 8000 he says he has them and he says he has like 900 horsepower.

The LS6s use these rods and I have read in HRM that those bottom ends are good for 900 hp. I couldn't tell you an exact issue but if they are publishing 900 then you might get away with a little more.

With those rods u have to be careful and checkout the pin end. You'll notice that the metal doesn't haven't equal thickness surrounding the pin hole. You'll see this all too often.
