Default vitara and rod help

im building a y8 for boost and found these pistons and rods
YCP 75mm Vitara Pistons+Custom Rods +ACL Bearings D16 | eBay

anyone have any input on this? or could i get the eagle rods and use the vitaras i have read in a couple places the vitara pistons could only be fitting onto custom rods like those from FJ.

any help would be great!

thanks in advance

Vitaras work with almost every aftermarket rod.

That price is a ripoff for bootleg ass ching chang meow rods. You can get a FJ custom length combo for like $420. Bearings don't cost that much money, I'm sure if you ordered from FJ they would hook you up on a combo.

Stay away from shady ebay shiz

Pretty much, was not aware of fjs situation. Rc is always good to deal with... Again, stay away from eBay rods lol

I've heard good reviews about P2P0 rods... And ACL race bearings aren't the cheapest.

We get about 3 phone calls on average about them daily, so if you have questions feel free to give us a call. 708 599 5884, I just don't see the sense of running eagle and having compression that low.

The ones in the eBay link, with the ACL race's are P2P0 rods.
ACL Race bearings are kinda costly, you can find king bearings for ~$50.

Not syaing that ACLs wont work, but of the people Ive heard spinning bearings WAY more often theyre ACLS... and of those MOST are rod bearings.

I did my math very carefully to get the spec I wanted, and even had to get my brand new rods resized on the big end a few tenths of a thou to get everything perfect, but in my experience that kind of attention to detail is what makes or breaks a hi HP builds reliability.

Moreso than what bearing you may choose to run.
I've read that the "hard" material doesn't trap particles that may harm your crank, IIRC.
