Default d17 rods strenght ?

How many tq and hp can handle stock d17 rods ?

For N/A setup with small nitrous shot, should I upgrade to LS rods or aftermarket forged ?

thank you

They can take quite a bit of abuse. Turbo guys are easily pushing 200hp on stock internals. The weak spot is the rod bolts. these can stretch and cause a spun bearing. Crower makes rods for the d17 if you are interested.

I will try to get tuner toys, less than half of crower price, if only available for d16, i'll shave rod bottom end

just to let you know crower is probably the only one with internals for the d17 thanks to kezay of 7thgencivic.com who gave them a motor to r&d. crower is pricey but they are a very good company. and also on my 7thgen i ran a 75 shot ALL the time, and never had one problem with it. I sold it because at the time i knew that building that engine would be expensive, so that's why i have my d15b sol, which is gonna be boosted here in a month . good luck with the d17 though, the 7thgen is a nice car and loved mine.
