Rods are great. Using them in my Mini-me built for turbo right now. You will have to notch your block with the H AND the I-beams however. So be prepaired for that. Its easy...

Goodluck.

Speaking of rods, i was taking apart my spare motor that i just got from a friend and this is what i pulled out. Im going to use the TT Rods with some JE Pistons (low compression) All balanced as well.

I used Eagles with my vitaras.. Plug and play. The car was daily driven 24/7 and never gave me a single problem

yes...theyre basically an exact copy of Eagles
copy of the old style Eagles, but pretty much the same thing :TU:

i got a set of the TT i-beams which they no longer carry. a little bit lighter than the h-beams, but should still hold all the power ill ever throw at them

Those are cheap!

I'm personally running Eagle H-beams, they're going for around $325 shipped if you want "name brand".
I like the word inexpensive much better than cheap...lol

Actually the car was purchased with the motor with a slick ticking noise but it ran just fine.
yup i bought an engine that ran "fine" but smoked a lot...after i pulled out the engine & broke it apart, the #4 connecting rod was bent the same way. i looked at the piston sleeve & it shows a bit longer carbon build up than the rest...but it idled & drove fine. ofcourse now i'm going w/ full endyn pistons & eagle rods & will try boosting w/ a t3 .60/.63. i want a sleeper vette killer;) !!!
