They should be alright considering standard rods would nearly be alright.

I beleive Kyle (6BOOST) has had testing done on these rods and found them to be pretty good.

He recommends them to people quite often on calaisturbo.

There is a bloke on XR6T forums who's brother sells the rods and he is using them in a really big HP build so he must be confident in the product.

I have some in my BA XR6 turbo at the moment, im running 360+rwkw and chasing 400-420rwkw. they seem to be good for now, comparing the 2 when i had the engine apart the standard were like tooth picks compared to h beam rods. I would be surprised if they didnt hold up to 1000hp
