Re: Project Lex

Yeah sticking with cd009 for now. T56 is a sweet setup but I'm already pretty deep into my cd009 setup so it will stay for now.

Re: Project Lex

Your car is going to be an animal with the new motor! How much power are the rods good for?

Re: Project Lex

They are quite strong. They have a very similar design to Carillo's, which used to be the go to rod choice for the big dogs (now turbo tuff is probably equally as common), which is interesting being that they are h-beam and people tend to think of h-beams as weak. There are guys running these at 1300hp and revving to 9-9.5k. Most of them run the upgraded arp625 bolts, however those are more to support the increase in rpm and less with power, but I'm sure they still help a little with power. I would say mine with the standard arp2000 bolts are probably comfortably safe to around 1200hp or so. They are such a great value being only like $100 more then the budget h-beams like Eagles, but significantly stronger, and significantly less expensive than the higher end rods like Carillo or the Turbo Tuffs. IMO these are the best value in rods out there, which is why I chose them.

The pistons are in a similar boat. They are not that expensive, but off the shelf they can be ordered with the stronger pin of you just order the Extreme Duty version. Geo from Real St ran these pistons at around 1300hp to the wheels thru an auto, so probably 1500hp at the crank. Again probably one of the best value off the shelf offerings.

I paid around $1300 for the piston rod combo. If you shop 2jz stuff, you'll see that is on the very low end of the cost spectrum for rod/piston combos. That's why it such a great value.
