Money wise I think it's worth it to go ahead and get the Callies.
I'm curious about the TSP set my self. Wonder if they use them often in their short blocks.

The big question is who makes them. I bought a Thompson motor that there saying will live all day at 1500 and they have people over 1800 with there components. Obviously someone is making them for these companies and they can't be junk because there surviving. And my motor has a year warentee

Tom Molnar is the ******' man. Way overlooked IMO. Bought rods from him before, product quality and customer service were top notch. Top. Notch.

Super nice guy and has been designing connecting rods for over 30 years, so he knows some **** about some ****. Check him out people.

Most of the time you get what you pay for!
I'm actually researching the same stuff now. My motor decided to quit last week, no warning.
