    Ken I am interested in the rods. Would I have to do any modifications to run them with my stage 2 forged pistons from buick?

    Joe, Buick crank journals would have to be widened as the Pontiac rods are wider than the Buick rods, or the Pontiac rods can be narrowed instead of the Buick crank journals.
    Also, to go with/use the Buick standard 1" pin, the small end of the Pontiac rod has to be re-bushed to allow use of the larger Buick pin.

    Lonnie, I have not contacted a machinist regarding the cost of using the Pontiac rods in a Buick block. The Pontiac rods and Ross pistons were for a future build, but now are not needed because I'm building a BBB stroker.
