Push Rods

I am in the midst of getting a new long block for my 7.3L and was wondering if you guys on here recommend putting in High Strength Push Rods while I am doing all this. I already got the heads ported & polished, ARP head studs, Forged Rods, Comp Cam springs. Is there anything else I should do while I am in there? How much power will these new push rods give me? What will the stock ones handle. I am only planning on maybe 500hp for the motor but I want the ability to go more for the future. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks..

Re: Push Rods

Are you asking how much HP it will produce?

Or how much it will safely hold?

Produce depends totally on injectors, turbo, fuel system.

Hold? Who knows. There have been many people snap forged rods are right around 500 HP. Some have held 650 for a long time

It's a gamble.

OH #### NO!!!!!

where did you hear that.


PMR's are good 400HP, if you're lucky
Forged are good to 500HP, if you're lucky.


Billet rods such as Crower, Cunningham, etc are good 900+, if you're lucky.

Re: Push Rods

I'd be willing to trade you straight across for your forged rods and you can have my powdered metal rods! I'll even pay shipping both ways!
