Default 1.8l connecting rods and new ARP bolts

I was going to have my stock rods (1996 year) reconditioned and installed in my new engine, along with the new ARP bolts. I decided to go with something else. The shop examined the rods and said they were in superb condition, all they need is the big ends resized. The bush ends are in incredibly great condition. The ARP rod bolts are brand new, just not in the package since I was in the process of having them installed on the rods. The rod bolts alone cost me around $60, and as I said they are brand new. The ARP bolts are lighter than stock because the nuts are 12 point compared to the heavier stock 6 point nuts.

If you want closer photos let me know. Thanks.

$70 to your door for everything.

How about you take the whole thing for $50. The bolts are what's worth the bucks in the sale, the rods are basically free.

Thanks for backing me up. Seriously, the rods are in primo condition. If you've seen Miata rods before, sometimes the bushed end bell shapes on the ends. The shop told me Mazda used softer bronze in the bushing than Honda, and they were going to swap in and ream a set of Honda bushings in case the ones in the rods were no good. Turned out they were in beautiful condition, so all I wanted was the big ends resized, and the rods shot peened. Reason for sale is that I moved up in blower size and expect to make closer to 300rwhp, and I open track, so the stock rods might become a liability at that power level and intended use. FM told me under 250rwhp what I was going to do was more than adequate.

$30 shipped sounds good.
Do you take paypal?

The reason I didn't respond earlier war because I was out of town snowboarding. Didn't have internet at the cabin.
