Just a bit of info.
I am running a JE piston, stock crank and STOCK RODS!
I wish to heck that I put in a forged rod now, but
I firmly belived that I could consistantly put 550rwhp
on the stock rods if they were worked and if I could
keep the knock out of the motor.
So far my faith in the stock rod has come through.
Almost everyone said, a stock rod wouldn't last into
the low-10's. I wanted to find out(and save some
money) in this build-up.
When I put the motor together, I had a machine
shop resize and stress relieve the stock rods.
The rods were in my last motor(heads/cam/nitrous)
and they had 36k miles before I pulled that one
apart and re-used the rods in the current motor.
Stock rods ran 9.81!
