Default Crankshaft Depot?

So, I was checking eBay for parts and **** and I ran across this place.

http://stores.ebay.com/CRANKSHAFT-DEPOT

The prices are pretty insane for the H Beam rods but a lot of times you pay for what you get. I don't want to make a cast iron sieve out of my engine block and I have to tear down the engine anyways because I have blown piston rings. Thoughts? Experiences?

My china rods have been great over the last 2-years.

Just get them checked out by a machine shop. If they say they are good to go, they are good to go.

Pretty ridiculous price with regular bolts.

I'm thinking I may spend the extra hundred and a half just so I have an actual vendor that speaks English and can understand any and all insults I hurl at him if my engine becomes a metal porcupine.

Shoot Marc at M-Tuned a pm and see if you can still get the group buy pricing of $299 for a set of 4. Really it does not get cheaper then that and you are supporting a forum sponsor.

I had min arrive in the mail today. Very impressed with them. The wrist pin fitment on my weiscos is perfect on all 4.
