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
