If they are like the TT i-beam rods then yes. Chances are you will have to knotch it.

Ive never seen a d block that did not need to be knotched when using aftermarket rods.

If you can get them for a good price then get'em!

youll most definitely have to notch it just like evosol said. ryan89crx also has the i beams in his built motor and also had to notch his block.

You need to put the crank and rods in and see where it hits anyway. Just put the crank and rods in and turn it over and see where it hits. Then do your grinding.

why do people think its a big deal to notch the block. a simple die grinder will work.

i thought crower was the only brand where you Didn't need to notch the block??Endyne uses them because these give No problems what so ever to install... or i'm talking about something else...?

Assemble the bottum end and rotate the crank. At least that way you will know. And if you need to notch it, grab a die grinder and go to town. Its not difficult at all.

nice. post up some pics. alot of people ask questions about block notching, so its nice to see as many examples as possible. when i notched my y8 block that i sold to fast2camcivic, i took about 1/4 of and inch deep off by 3/4 of an inch wide. energy dynamics has a very nice thread on this.
