1R23 is the prefix for AU, AU2 6200 A. The BA Con-rods are different for the Turbo BA 6200 A, these were used until the end of the April 2006.

The change in Con-rods for Turbos came in BF from May 2006 on., Part Number BG 6200 A

Standard Piston Part Numbers:
BF Turbo May 2006 on BAF 6108 TSTD

BA Turbo up to end April 2006 BG 6108 ESTD

Hope that helps.

Its does,they are ba turbo pistons,but not to keen on using the conrods,the egas rods would be stronger wouldnt they?so is the1R23AA a turbo conrod and are these the rods known for bending as in the early egas and turbo engines?

as papa smurf mentioned the 1r23 rod is a std au rod, not as strong as the bf turbo rod.

how much boost are you planning to run? I have had the std au rods and pistons hold 15psi all day long...
if you going serious boost don't waste time on factory rods, buy some spool or atomic rods...
