Hey guys I?ve been looking through a few threads and trying to compare the difference between eagle rods and BC rods. I see that eagle rods can safely hold up to 700 hp and then I CBC rods that can safely go up to 350 which are a lot more money. The motor has a built head by mazwork and a gtx2871 turbo with 1050 cc injectors

Which are 729

Then there is

Which Are a lot cheaper and I am just wondering are the ones that are cheaper made for race applications and don?t last as long. finally the last thing with pistons do you guys like the CP pistons and I dont mind spending Extra money if needed

Not looking for cheap price not really a issue rather spend money once better parts just wonder what everyone think.

Thanks for the help

The $400 rod says it handles 200hp/cylinder

thats around 800hp

A stock rod can handle 450hp~ it is generally accepted up to 500whp in some cases.

Biggest issue with aftermarket rods is... the details. The machining. Matching. Balancing act. Installation procedure.

It isn't impossible but. If you are not doing it yourself... prepare to check every little thing the machine shop does and find a brillion brallion mishtakshes
