Icon5 Having trouble finding conecting rods

Right now I have my H23 Block at the machine shop getting it bored over. I am not having a problem getting the actuall pistons, cause they have to be custom made, but the problem I'm running into is that I can not find connecting rods for the life of me!!!!! No body makes anything for the H23. Does anyone know where I can get some good connecting rods????? They have to be able to withstand NOS. Thanks everyone!!!

carillo, crower, eagle, pauter, to name a few


and your getting the block sleeved, correct? cuz you cannot bore the FRM material w/o FUBAR'ing it up.

Re: Having trouble finding conecting rods

Yes the block is getting sleeved, I would'nt do it any other way. I already had a rod go through the side wall once, and had nothing at all done. What company would u go with? Cause I also had a hard enough time just finding an intake manifold!! And the only compony that seems to have made one is golden eagle. What rods would u use?? Oh, I'm putting in a 100 to 200hp nos kit. So they would have to withstand that.

the ones listed above would be fine candidates..carillo and eagle are the most common and are reliable..

as far as the intake manifold is concerned...have you tried SKUNK2 intake manifolds and fuel rails.

try these guys http://www.optionsauto.com/
