    Default Stock or High Performance Rods for 350 Buick

    I would like to know if anyone here is interested in new stock or High performance rods produced for our 350 Buick engines?

    The HP rods are 90 grains lighter and can handle 7000 rpm.

    If you are interested, drop your name here. Trying to gauge interest as this deal is just coming together and I will add more details tonight.

    Nice! I like IT! Would be easy to bush for a .927 pin and get a better pin select. Not like it is worth the time with stock rod......But a nice aftermarket rod like that

    what's the deal with this?, these were the limiting factor to going beyond 500hp in our motors right?
    4340 rods,some forged pistions and a blower would do nicely together!

    That is the point of these rods, we also have brand new replacement dished pistons.
