what's your application or HP goal?I'd try to source ARP bolts for piece of mind. Their quality control is going to be unmatched to a generic, possibly china made, bolt. If you have a rod bolt failure you'd basically scrap the whole engine.

Sorry, i should have said in that last post that i sent them a messaged to see if they even offered ARP branded bolts. I found the claim interesting that the no name bolts would be as good or better than ARP. I guess its not terribly crazy to think that they would be ok to use. Hell, who would have thought that the rods would be good?

I would be curious to know if anyone is running rods with the bolts they provide. Only ones that i have found with ARP bolts are 5/16 and starting at $270ish. However, titanmotorsports on ebay is selling Scat rods with 3/8 ARP2000 bolts for $304 shipped.
