    Dude. Buy my rods. I have the rods and pistons out of that motor I bought. They're already forged. You can put your pistons on them.

    Alright. Pay out the ass for new rods. I don't care. ;)

    Forged rods for 20 bucks a piece. You could have them shot peened and balanced on the crank for a lot cheaper than tryin to buy all new rods.

    Edit: you know I'm sellin all my shit.

    Check the list. :eek:

    WISECO not WEISCO

    I really wish people would spell it right. The pistons are great though. Both my built engines have used Wiseco pistons.

    Great, the mass of each piston was very close so my machinist didn't have to do anything to balance them. They looked great, the rings that came with them have seated and are sealing well. No complaints here. I bought them through Intercrew (in Calesta'a sig) and mine are the Wiseco modified by Endyn.
