They are for AU 4.0's, so youll need au rods to suit the pin height in earlier engines.

Nope, youll have to try to find a wrecker who has a spare set or get a set of BA/F rods from ford.

Just check it all out with the engine builder or whoever is doing the machining before you buy anything.

What sort of compression ratio are you after?

More compression is good, too much is very bad.

What cam are you going to run. If you have a cam with lots of overlap you can run more compression.
