Default Mazda 323 gtx rods on a 94 1.8

I've been reading into this for the longest, It looks like the rods from a 87-89 gtx would fit into the miata 1.8, these look better for their overall strength , what do you guys think?

not worth it given the cost... they arn't that much stronger than stock, and they are heavier.

just put in good rods if you have the motor apart, suck it up and do it right the first time.

I never understand why people cheap out so much and then bitch about blowing the motor in 9 months.

Pistons (wiseco) are for sale on ebay...

The gtx rods are much stronger (hold 25psi) but heavier...
