I recently bought rods from someone over Craigslist he posted them as eagles, so with out thinking I bought them cus they looked like eagles etc, anyway I get home and I'm looking st the rods, identical to eagle rods but they say SCAT.

I've heard of these before and I heard they were good rods, my main concern is

1. Is the torque for the rod caps the same ?

2. Do I need to notch the block still ?

Thanks

Technically speaking, you need to torque the rod bolts to whatever torque was applied when the bore was honed.

I know it's a smarky answer but if you ever change out rod bolts/buy unknowns, it is smart to have them checked out with a bore gauge

Nah they were ran on his vitara block but he broke ringlands, everything remained the same other wise

And I got them for 100 with blown pistons :)

If they have already been run, then I would ask the guy you bought them from what the torque value was when he (or someone else) assembled the motor.

26 sounds right. I know mine were right around that.
On my B20 ARP rod bolts, I think they were 28, I think only the Vtec rods has the 60+ lb values

Yeah I applied a 7/16th on the rod and it fit perfect, the 5/16 was too small, so 63ft/lb it is I guess
