    What length rod do you need. I have a set of 6.535" long Carrillos that I personally had magged, shot peened, and the big end resized on.

    I think 71 Hallett told me he has a friend using Scat???? rods at 1,600 HP turbocharged with no problems. PM him if you want more info.

    We have used stock gm rods in a small block's and big blocks making 1,000+ hp in turbo set up's......A set of eagle H-beams would be more than enough to handle 1,000 hp.

    Of course a set of olivers would be one of the best rods to choose but you can do with much less if your budget is tight.

    Callies Compstar are perhaps the nicest of the imported rods that I have seen. They suggest the H beams up to 850 HP. Their I beam rods were rated considerably higher.

    Not saying they won't work I have recently talked to Callies since they don't list any recomendations on their website. I was also confirming that they were not US made, as someone tried to tell me the other day.

    As I said, they are perhaps the nicest looking of any of the imported rods that I have held in my hands.

    Ever think about why Eagle rods originally picked their name? Of course everyone now knows they are Chinese, but I am sure the orginal idea was to slide them in without too many people knowing until they were generally accepted.
