It's coming to a point on my project now that the stock forged rods from my 99 motor wont be able to stand up to what I want from them or at the very least not for long unless I baby it forever.
Since it's taking longer than I planned to get everything to this point I have the money for De-lipped and coated Mahles and some good rods but my searches for comparisons on them turns up hardly anything on which might be better or worth more than the others.
Manley's are ~2300
Crowers and Carillos are ~2600
and the Hypermax ones come in at just under 3k
Anyone have opinions or advice to guide me? Any more options out there?
Haven't been on PSA for a long time. They are a different crowd. You'll find kids wanting smoke to guys making monster HP! There's a lot of guys over there making 500+hp. Ain't many on here doing that.
