I am currently building a D16y8 for my track only car which is a 00 coupe ex. the car will be only used for road course and i wanted to stay N/A
I have
P29 pistons
Head decked .10
ARP headbolts
Crower valve springs, retainers, and a stg 3 cam
Skunk 2 IM and a B16 TB port matched to the manifold
I am waiting on the bisi Header to come out
im looking to get about 175-185 HP
now my question is will my stock rods hold up to this abuse or should i get some eagle rods?

if your looking for 175 whp?. id say a worked head/full bisi head is in order, and if clearances permit. more milled off the head.
tt rods are 225.
or you could have your's shot peened and worked over. and all that.

It is a process that basically shoots little BB's at the rods to make them more dense.. Making the metal stronger in a sense...

spend about $500 getting the ECU dyno tuned, if not rod will wanna exit.

The timing curves are totally different on high compression, you can't just turn the dizzy and expect it to be right.
