That's what I thought you were getting at. So they were new ,with 0 runs?
I'd worry more about the component weights.How are they?

They were from a street driven SBC.
Bud Rowe did the engine about 15 years ago.
It got Dyno'ed and then stored it.

Are Powder Metal ones any better?

If you really feel that way, get the best aftermarket rods available and sleep well at night.

Not about feeling.
Lot of Racer’s did well with Pink Rods.
Just maybe wiser to sell to restoration market.
Seems Pink Rods did well when prepared like any rod.
Now Stocker engines freely go above 7000.
8000 from some combinations which use to be SS range
Just too much.

Just saying. Good rods are really a small price to pay for a real stocker effort that will be raced. Sure there are lots of things I did in the 90’s I wouldn’t do now. I don’t know about you, but the few times I broke engines, I always FELT bad. It was definitely about my feelings. And my wallet. LOL

Got the wallet part.
Only blew one engine.
The piston made a nice ashtray

Manley has some nice, light, easy to fit rods. Mine goes past 8K all the time with no failures yet. Been using them for many years.

Budd Rowe fitted the Pink Rods with Forged pistons, about 8 years ago.
Engine has been in storage and Rockville Ring and Bearing just went through the block with fresh bearings.

If i kept them what RPM range would be safe?
One racer posted he used them in a SS engine at much higher rpm than 7000 rpm.

Only have so much tine and money..
