The rods should hold close to 500 horse. I have seen people say you should get a main gurdle when you go over 400, but I dont think I am going to worry about it when I get there. I figure I can probable get another used engine for close to the price of a gurdle. so I'm gonna push mine untile I need rods.

with all your mods you'd be much better off with a custom burned chip. The edge is not made for heavily modded trucks.
