Piston rod combo using which rod? Stock rods or the pauters? From what I understand stock rods are forged, at least that was the end result of that thread. Sick you were in that thread and I think you were too ademan. It was said that there's no casting marks on the rod or something? If this is the case I'm just gonna stick with stock rods. It's said they can handle 350 easy. I know that number was probably pulled out of someone's ass, but if its a good tune and you don't miss a gear, I don't see a problem using them.
I know you have pauters from earlier threads, but with the weight comparison which rods were you referring to?
