Ok, I'm about to order a rebuild kit with hypereutectic pistons of course.......is there an alternative for better connecting rods? H beam are unnecessary for ME, but I'm starting to get paranoid....:shocked:


For a cammed 4.2 daily driver....Yes I know forged is best but i'm on a budget and no whay I'm gonna pay $800+ for a forged Wiseco piston set....

Forget forged! Only if your going to high mass amounts of compression

Cant be worse than older 5.4l rods. They tooth picks!
