You broke a set of rostens right ? So you're running I beams ?? Are those the cuttingham onesI'd say it depends on how much torque that you put through the engine.If you plan on running a big or large single then the factory rods might be ok.
If running compounds then mabye consider a rod upgrade.
My old ALH based engine years ago broke 3 out of 4 H-beam rods.
I now use aftermarket I-beam rods with a 3/8" rod bolt.
The funny part was that I had the BEW rods in my old ALH and decided to upgrade to the H-beam rods as I was worried about the BEW rods failing.
It might be possible that the PD rod would take all the power/rpm I could make with only mabye upgrading the rod bolts,who knows ?
Thanks for the link - Post 42 is the one I was thinking of, however the whole thread is worth a read for context
If you are interested in them I might sell them cuz I might upgrade to M9 they have never even been torqued
