I should mention that both are forged.

Since most big blocks don't like being buzzed to 7 grand you might be headed for trouble running those revs. That being said, you'd be better off buying a set of Carillo or Crower billet rods and some real good bolts if you're going to torture it.

Just some $1199.00 rod advice. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I built a 468 for one of my buddies camaros and it spins to 7200 all day long without a hiccup!! Just make sure you get the good ARP bolts and a 4340 crank. We are running an Eagle 4340 crank and the Eagle H-beam rods. And dont forget to have a reputable machine shop balance the assembly.
