damn, those rods are going to need alot of notching
thats what I was thinking, those bastards are thick! Eagles require around 1/4" of notching, it wouldnt surprise me if you were in the 3/8-1/2" range with those...

Build looks good so far, those rods look beefy. As for the manifold, those will crack over time, they usually end up in the garbage cause they crack so much.

Check out our website in sig for manifolds.
