Thanks. I think about putting lighter rods into the engine and found Manley are the most light ones. Just had some concern they would break.I had Manley rods, with Mahle pistons and was pushing 600hp with no problem. After about 5000 miles I did have an engine failure but it had nothing to do with the pistons or rods.
There was a lot of debates over were the Manley h beam rods come from and I think it's china, the turbo tuff h beams are made in the usa thoughNothing wrong with manley rods, also eagle rods are good too. They use the manley rods in most boosted civics in usa which are making big numbers.
Sometimes companies outsource their manufacturing, so the rods for eagle,manley etc could all come from the same factory just with a different brand name
