I am looking to build my engine, no one makes rods for my car and I am only looking to run like 12-14 psi so do you think that if I buy forged pistons and then get my rods shot peened it will be strong enough! Thanks for any help! This is for an Accord F23a1 Vtec engine! Also the revs are only going to 6,300.
no, and you can have custom rods made. Take the turbo money and buy an H22. You'll end up in the same place and have reliability.
