Just merged these in the Perf Forum.

I think you would be fine with either make. Trouble is finding a set of them...Dmax perf rods are very tough to get right now.

True. Either is great, and they are a hard item to obtain. I am getting Crower rods for my build.

IIRC, the stock rods are powered metal....Merchant, Trippin and Cole all found out that stock rods (esp the LBZ units) are decent in stock to mid HP apps, but if you're going big (700+rwhp), they cant hold up. I'd have to find the post where nwpadmax explains it all....it was very easy to understand.

With the way the rod market is right now, I would not worry about what name is on them, just getting them is a treat.

To add to this, here is Mat's post concerning stock rod mfg, and comparing them to a forged alloy rod, also concerning fracture splitting vs machined caps:
