Just how many connecting rods so you need/want?

Do you just want Mazda rods? or will any con rod do?

Right now I have 3 sets of rods. The first set is from y8s and are bent. The second are a set I just picked up off here for cheap. Then I have the set from my old motor that I plan on pulling. I am thinking I need another 2 or 3 sets, plus a random semi destroyed piston if someone happens to have one of those. I think that I have a 6UL on the way soon, but I am still planning on calling Emilio tomorrow.

Pictures will be posted when I start the build and as it goes along. My welding class starts in a few weeks and I will probably start after I have talked to my teacher about the best way to do it.

I was planning on only going with miata rods, because that is all I know how to get for cheap. If you have any badly bent or damage I will gladly take them. Shoot me a pm.

For the design the plan is the have one rod comming off each U on the 6UL. So that is 6 rods there. Then alternate rods rods up until I get to the height I want. With a piston on top holding the bulb.

$20+ shipping for 4 good rods (makes me cry a little), one with an attached chipped piston? You can take comfort in knowing that the pistons chipped due to a poorly tuned power card on a supercharged car.

I have three available. I'm keeping one cause their pretty epically bent. It's going next to the piece of cam I have left when the alternator belt broke and flipped unto the timing belt (no cover) and locked up the motor. Broke the cam in three places.

Those don't look very bent to me. Are you gonna torch them and bend/twist 'em?
