DJ is right. The pistons and pins would be the weakest link in the chain. The titanuim rods are a unknown at this point. I would hope they be more beefy the stock C5 PM rods.DJWorm said:Well the crank IS forged and the main caps are billet which are improvements over the LS6.
The pistons would need to be replaced with forged units.
They also improved the rod bolts.
The only part that is left in question are the new Titanuim rods. Are they stronger than the powdered metal LS6 rods. Are they forged or billet ?? Can they withstand forced induction pressures. I suspect they will be able to.
You may only have to replace the pistons.
I would still use all studs in the block for better clamping uniformity.
This is not necessarily true.RocketSled said:If you're making a lot of additional power, you need to have beefier rods to handle it.
Agreed. Knowing your target horsepower will determine the amount of boost required, which in turn determines the compression ratio/pistons to run.DJWorm said:You may only have to replace the pistons.
Without a doubt. :cheers:I would still use all studs in the block for better clamping uniformity.
