Rods and costs...

Ok, well to make the long story short i own a 2001 and the rods are probably not the forged ones so needless to say im worried about doing any more mods. where can i get a cheap set of forged rods and how much will it cost to get them installed? i just need an estimate or maybe someone knows cuz they had it done... thanks for any info guys...

It's gonna cost some money to put some rods in...

it's a big step - decide if you want to take it after looking at your checkbook!

You can find stock forged rods for about $300-$600, get them checked if you buy used...

Here is a link for a set of rods, Diesel Innovations - Products


But to be blunt you are a LONG way from needing rods... You are at about 325 with the water meth, you could throw a set of stage 2 injectors in there and hit about 375-400 with good tunes.

The above is also the best price I have found on forged rods also. They are great to deal with aswell:burnout
