    2/ selecting forged rods

    Yer good article,

    As a very base rule, Manufacturers build a 30-40% tolerance into Petrol engines so you can run around a compression on standard rods and crank, You will have to drop the compression,

    I use Arrow Rods, brilliant for strength, durabilty and tolerances in there machining
