Default GB on Forged Rods!! $295 (Not 276)

I've worked out a purchase of CAT forged rods through a distributor/importer under my dad's business. I got 6 sets total, which was the minimum order. I'm keeping 2, so 4 sets are available. These are the same rods that 949 and Belfab offer at $340. Should have them in around 2 weeks.

$289/set + shipping. I'm making NOTHING on these. So I wll need to request an additional 3% if paying by paypal.

I'll have them in around 2 weeks. No payment is needed until I have them in my hands. Interested? First come, first served. The line starts here...

<edit> updated list found here
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/ann...nt.php?f=&a=17

updated pricing: $300/set including shipping to the lower 48. payment required today 12/27

The rods should work in all bp/b6 motors which include miatas, proteges, and escorts, and whatever else runs the mazda b block.

whatever is easiest for you. I'll even take a personal check if you want to drop one in the mail since there will be ample time for it to clear (established members only).

Ben you should save a set for Sam. I'm sure he'll want a set once he logs on and sees the deal.
