rod capabilities

Wondering what the stock forged rods can handle hp, boost, and rpm wise. Can they be peened for strength like 12v rods? I'm looking at a 38r/gt47 compounds on 350/200s with a stage 1.5 cam. Can they handle it or should I go billet? Thanks

Re: rod capabilities

I would go billet. you would be makeing allot of power with that set up and doing it twice might get expensive.
