Stock 6.0 Rods?
If I use the ARP rod bolts how much power can I make and be safe with these rods. Is it nessessary to get I beam or h beam rods? I have a 6.0 iron block bored .30 with Diamond forged pistons and a set of fully ported heads with big valves 2.055 or 2.10 not positive and 1.60's I am wanting to go with a t- rex cam. Am I going to make too much power for the stock rods? I also am going to be puttting a 175-200 shot on it aswell in the future.
Pardon my ignorance, I am new to LS1's and don't know the limits yet. I know this block can handle some power but i am not so sure about the rotating assy.
Any help would be awsome!! thanks!!

If you are going to bottle an additional 175-200 hp out of it later, its worth the piece of mind for the better bolts. The rods themselves should be ok with proper machine work & reconditioning.Hammer - hammertime.us
