my old built 25 in the VL was making 350kw and when the engine was pulled down it had 3 bent rods. it only had a fresh set of bolts fitted so im very lucky to not have thrown one.

rb26 ones are a lot stronger than 25's so if cheap upgrade is what you are after they may suit.

GTR rods if you want to be a tight arse, $150 for the 6 and will do the job, need pistons to suit

rod length is the same so 25 pistons will be fine, only need to change pistons if using a 26 crank.

yer jus usin the 25 crank so 26 rods should b fine?

RB25 and RB26 Rods are the same length, the difference is in the Pistons - gudeon pin is a slightly different height on the piston as the piston deck height is different.

Thats only due to the 26 having a longer stroke...makes ZERO difference when using the 25 crank.

Unless of course you're saying not to use 26 pistons?

If you are ignore me lol
