Re: Pink Rods vs After Market
Do you have the rods already? If not go aftermarket. If you do, buy some good rod bolts for it and you will be fine.
I ran the worst rods Chevy ever built, stock 400 5.565 rods with heavy 540 gram pistons for years. Spun it to 6,000 for over 200 passes and everything looked great when I tore it down. The rod bolts are the key...
