a local guy has a built ze with milli rods and wiseco pistons.Hes at 11:1 compression with a 115 wet shot and hasnt had any hiccups so far.IIRC, the milli rods should hold up to around 400whp.IMO, its not worth spending loads of cash on more expensive rods, since the tranny will give out long before you push the rods integrity.Id suggest, milli rods and JE or Diamond pistons.Im contemplating selling my milli rods since im staying n/a now, pm me if your interested.

^^^ seconded, you will probably never get into the risky power range to fubar up these rods without blowing your tranny first.


IPP claims they will hold up to 20psi.

If you use milli S rods you need custom pistons. They have larger free floating wrist pins.

Custom yes, but big custom price no. Go to importperformanceparts.net, then go to Mazda, then go to Pistons, Wiseco, and on that page(the second engine listing no KL Pistons) there are pistons for "Mazda Millennia S KL 2.5L (21mm Pin)" . These are the pistons for the milli S rods.

If you get a set of Milli S rods then yes they are. If you want to confirm that those are the ones get ahold of IPP and ask them to make sure. They are pretty good with responding to email.

I kinda wish I hadn't sold them, but I'm still on the fence about building an engine.

Well, if you do decide you want the pistons, Corksport sells them. Iirc, they're around $300 for the set?
