    Hey Guys! I'm finally putting together my B16 turbo build project.. But I didn't buy my connecting rods yet! I'm looking towards Eagle H-beam Connecting Rods. Hopefully maybe break 350-400 whp! Do you think these Eagle connecting Rods will be okay? Or anyone have suggestions! *Remember I'm little on the budget side! *I also heard that the b16 stock rods could do the job but I want something thats more reliable. Thank Guys!

    Probe Ultralites

    Strong enough to handle 600whp+, but significantly lighter mass than Eagle so you get more torque and quicker response, and about the same price.

    ^^^ Comparison

    The I beams are my Probes, and the H beams are my Eagles.

    Probe is an actual name brand. I bought them from ImportBuilders, but you might want to look around for the best price if you want to buy them new.

    They may look similar to your Tuner Toys rods, but they're different. Most rods are going to look similar when you're just looking at pictures. They're not like body kits. The differences are all under the skin.
