    K, im rebuilding my B16 because im boosting it, and all i got low compression pistons, and an eagle crankshaft. So all i need left is the connecting rods. Whell...i found a set of used eagle connecting rods with 2K miles on em'. there really cheap...is it worth it? or should i just get brand new rods?

    Unless you see cracks or an obvious bend in the rods, used rods are generally a safe bet.
