Powder metal rods?

Hey everyone,
I am trying to put a H2e turbo on my 2000 f-250 with 5 inch straight pipe and an intake with up pipes and an intercooler. my main concern is the rods. Is there any chart that someone has to see what rods I have?

Thanks

2000 should be forged. PMRs weren't until around mid 01 I think...

Yea you should have no problem with the rods. You'll want to do headstuds and valve springs though to handle the horsepower for peace of mind.
