    Is it possible to put or modify B16 rods into a D16? D16 rods are toothpicks and i would like more confidence under boost. Thanks

    B16 rods are shorter than D16 rods. You're thinking LS rods; which need to be bushed on the PE from 21mm to 19mm, and milled like 1mm on both sides of the BE.

    Ya man. Too much work if you ask me for rods that aren't really that much stronger. I'd just get the tt rods. They are great for the money.

    My tt rods haven't let me down yet. Mind you they only have about 5k on them. We'll see how they hold up to some spray.
