Pros:
  • interlock on rod bolts
Cons:
  • slight heavy but acceptable
Yes, I recommend this product.

great rods and cheaper than stock

August 17, 2014
We used to cross our fingers and recondition used rods, but there are fewer good shops doing that work today. Then we bought new stock rods from Chevy and performed the extras. That cost bucks. For a while you could get name brand rods cheaper than stock, but no more. New rods like these, with all the extras, are cheaper than Chevy rods and much better. Great for a mild street motor.
Pros:
  • all the extra prep
Cons:
  • import
Yes, I recommend this product.

little over priced for what you get

May 03, 2014
Rod isn't to bad but the abuse they go through before you receive them makes them not very desirable, you may have to do some work before using.
Pros:
  • cap screws
  • 5140
Cons:
  • small nicks
  • Price
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sorry these rods do not have an RPM rating. They do work well for engines in the application that you are dealing with. We sell a lot of these rods for Hobby Stock engines.

What is the bolt torque for these rods? I bought a set, and they either did not come with an instruction sheet, or my machinist lost it. Thank you in advance!
