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.

^ shit i know there are guys running 12psi with no internals and no problems what so ever. most of them are running 220-230 hp at they level i believe. now i know, catalyst, another 7thgenmember and sf turbo guys, has his built running higher boost and pushin over 300 hp. check out 7thgencivic and search it.
