if you have a set of Ea rods spare, and would part with them cheaply, I'd like to hear from you. I'm in ACT.

please email charles@cletusracin.com

I read somewhere that they are the same as 250 crossflow rods but are stronger? if anyone has some pics of them or knows anything about this would like to hear it.

I dunno mate, not much really as they arent worth much, I was hoping someone would have a dead engine willing to give away real cheap, or something like that. But name your price.

are EA -> EL rods the same in pretty much every aspect?

EDIT: what I should be asking, is which rods are best from the EA -> EL series? i read an article that anthony briggs cortina used EA rods which were apparently TRW items?

the TRW rods you are looking for are from the EF, they may have been used in other engines but the EF is the only one i've seen them in.

not sure on month, got it as a long engine.

From memory it also had a EF crank (but ed pistons) so might have been an end-of-model bitsa engine.

I have some rods from an EL 97 model that have TRW on them, but the rods I have for an AU II do not have TRW on them.

the longer AU rod is deemed not as strong as the TRW forged rod from the earlyer engine.

When ford started having problems with the Egas BA engine they opted for a beefier version of the rod that was a hand-me-down from the typhoon engine. but it to is still considered a weaker rod. though is revs are kept to that of the stock rev limmit in an NA engine you won't have any troubles from any of the stock offerings, (provided the tune is good) detonation has been the biggest killer of the later 'long rod'

so the consensus is EA, EF, ED, EL may have the trw rod, if anyone has a set I'm keen to aquire some.

never seen them in an EA befor. and from memory the EA had a lower rev limmit then the later engines. it seems later ED to early EL (short rod not hybrid) have the TRW rod
