Question My Engine....

I have a quick and should be easy to answer question. I just want a little piece of mind.. Should i be worried about the rods in my 7.3 with an Xcal 2 tuned by tadd on the highest setting and a water meth injection? im sure it isnt a hard question but im getting more and more worried about the engine as time goes and i think about it. i also have an afe stage 2 and 5" turbo back exhaust to put on it. everything is in my sig, should i worry about anything failing basically is my question?... thanks guys.

I think I read forged are good for 500 rwhp and the pmr's are good for 400rwhp Not sure on the cutoff date for forged rods I think Oct of 2000 but I have read to really make sure you have to pull and inspection plug and look at the rods to make sure.

Cut off on forged rods is 10-2000 but if you have a close build date you can tell by engine code or by pulling out the plug and looking.

Forged good to close to 600HP PMR's 400HP
