If the tune is good (i.e. you don't burn a hole in the piston or melt a valve) the stock rods will go first from simple torque. They are the same basic cast rod for all 15 model years. Most turbos don't like to run at extreme RPMs which makes any intake/head work academic if you are doing it to lower torque values. Just put some forged ebay rods in and be done with it.
