    Connecting rods with SC

    Have thought about getting a super charger but have already seen some who have manged to break connecting rods when they did this. Are the stock CR's strong enough to handle a supercharger? Roughly at what HP should you think about changing the rods? Thanks!

    Most say the rods are not the weak link it is the bolts. At least up grade the bolts and try not to spin them to the hilt.
