What's a good stock length rod Upgrade?

I see H-beams are about 50 grams heavier then stock rods and they don't make SIR rods in stock lengths no more. Look like Crower I beam?? Procomps I beams looks good but scare me.

The Scat Hbeams have been used successfully many times, great bang for-the buck.

I can't think of an OEM length rod option out there that doesn't have a use, and that includes Procomp's 3 different con rod offerings (as well as all the other brands).  That said, if you want piece of mind then your cost is only about $100 more give or take.

What the peak rpm, HP, and application of this engine?

Hopefully keep 6800 rpms with better rod. Want to be able to have shortblock live through better bolt ons. So 450 HP to 600. Got dove heads ported going on first with dual plane. Might through a really good set of TFS Streets on it later with a solid roller I got. All depend if gas goes way up and cruising gets too High of cost. Heck might even throw a 150 shot on it later down the road. Might never leave drive way either. But like having room for options later. Right now like to go to cruise inns and gets some timed passes to talk about.

Although an H-beam rod is a bit heavier, a good aftermarket forged piston & pin are usually a bit lighter so, it is still pretty easy to balance.

Lightweight I-Beam

http://www.vigilanteparts.com/Probe_Industries_Lightweight_I_Beam_Rods_6_605_p/1202-10042.htm

Approximately 775 grams. I've been using them for over 20 years.

What you know about the RPM I beam 4340 ROD. Its suppose to way 740 grams, but sounds too light. Probes are 775 grams, RPMS come with arp 200 bolts. Can't swing the cash for the PROBES, Maybe can later for the RPMs

The RPM Rod doesn't come with ARP-2000 Bolts.....not that you need them.
