    Forged rods

    G'day guys!

    Well im looking at getting a GT2871 and it would be recommended that i get forged rods (but if im doing that might as well get a GT30.. but thats another story!)

    anyhow i was wondering where is the cheapest place to get them?

    i have found these
    http://cgi.ebay.de/H-shaft-Pleuel-Au...item5d24d142fe

    But they look like there from china..

    Is it worth changing the rods over?

    cheers!

    Use these...

    Depending on if you have a 19mm or 20mm gudgeon pin... whats your engine code?

    ...and yes, it is worth changing the rods if you are planning on a GT28/30

    LOL... the engine code is the three letter code stamped on a tab on the head... cam belt cover side at the front...



    When you find that then look at the 1.8t info sheet in the stickies to see what size pins you have. Fairly sure you will have an APY like Welly's and I think they are 20mm pins

    sorry lol i miss read it with the VIN number(that and ive been using the 3 letters AUZ alot..) the eng number was AOY which i can't seem to find..

    hmm..

    For arguments sake ill got with APY as its a 2000 and there is no such thing as AOY

    Yep, im not going crazy my Rego sticker has it listed as Eng No: AOY 006....
