    as some guys know i'm builing an all motor bottom end and need to know what rods i should use? eagles seem pretty cheap but i don't want to pay cheap money for a cheap part. what are you guys running in your all motor setups? i'm most probably going with 84.5mm 11.5.1 pistons with jeff. thanks guys.

    calm down with the caps. eagle rods are fine. i think the stock rods are good up to around 300hp. most of my friends with turbo cars(turbo b16 hatch, turbo h23 lude, and turbo ls teg) are using eagle, so i guess the eagles are pretty good. imo they are cheaper than the others because they are not as light. strength-wise they are pretty good.

    If you are getting pistons from jeff, why don't you get rods as well?
