Any thoughts? I've seen a few sets floating around on ebay that have been reconditioned and shotpeened...

What about reconditioning my current rods? good or bad idea with about 100 grand on the motor?

I do not think that it is necessary to go all out and buy a set that requires the block to be notched for my particular build. If there is a decent aftermarket set that doesn't require a notch, I may be interested in that.

I'm not trying to be cheap, just economical in my approach. I do not think that 400-500 dollar rods are necessary for my build. If you think otherwise, please let me know. Then again, getting oem rods from honda would set me back more than aftermarket big hp rods :D

well for just 230hp the stock rods are near the limits..shotpeened will make it better and u would prolly have no problems at those limits... but aftermarket rods can handle what like 400hp+ and they dont have to cost 500$ buy them used or get them from ebay i believe has eagle h beams for less then 300$

i would immagine to get urs shotpeened and all that done will cost atleast 100$
and notching the block is very very easy
