are you having problems with them? are you running boost? I thought the rods were the week link.

powdered rods are not weaker than those cast pistons they both should be changed for nitrous the reason i am looking for a dropin kit.

Yes but if you do it right with forged parts you will be fine if you do it right with cast pistons and powdered rods it is only how long.

ive had nos before. and do you really want to do this work to it just to get some cheap hp and have to replace the parts you wear down and break every few months? which in the end isnt really cheap HP.
