    machine shop...definitely...there is really no other way to do it that i know of. Basically they have a lil oven (sorta) and put the rod in it, let it sit till the timer goes off, then they pull the rod out, put the piston on top and push the pin in. when the rod cools down, it shrinks back to normal size, and voala.
