I am thinking of switching from my Scat h beam 6.200" with arp 2000 bolts to a Eagle h beam 6.200" with l19 bolts... I have over 200 passes on my scat h beams with no problems I am making about 1060hp on a 300hp spray shifting at 8100rpm... The motor will make about 1200 with more spray and different camshaft also some more cylinder head work... Will the eagle stuff hold 8300rpm... I am asking for people that are using them only!!! Thanks

Ps. Another year using my tfs-r heads... The gv2's will have to wait $$$$, different pistons, headers,carb, rockers,pushrods.... I put them on the side for now...

5.4" rod and 8600 rpm with 30+lbs F2 boost. Numerous low 8 sec 1/4 mile passes at 176-179 mph and my Eagle rods with L-19 rod bolts are fine. The Eagles are great rods with the L-19 bolt!

Common I need to hear from some guys with small blocks and 400-500 shot spray!

Hey George, in my last motor I had eagle h-beams with L-19 bolts 6.300 with a 3.85 stroke. I use to rev it to 8200 but somtimes use to see 8300-8400 when I hit it with a 36 jet. I have over 350 passes on them over 250 of them in the 8's. i went as fast as 8.40's with them, but couldn't get the small tire to hook at all.

Hey Ernie, I really don't want to put aluminum rods with this set up... It looks like I would buy the eagle h- beam with l19's... On my gv2 set up I will go all out but that will have to wait another year!

Yeah I had my checked out, everything is good, now in my basement, not sure if you have a crank and rods for yours, but I can offer you a great deal on my crank and rods, I do have pistons aswell but not sure if you can use them with the GV2 heads, its all balanced checked and ready to go.

Why not just put the L19 bolts in the Scat rods?

I thought about changing only the bolts... I figured new rods would be better... Maybe that is the cheapest way out...

Yes steel rods last a long time, just have them checked, and if everything is good buy the bolts

Thanks Ernie, gv2's is 11* head needs custom pistons.... my rotating is perfect just looking to upgrade my rods for safety reasons only! Maybe I am just going to upgrade the bolts to l19...

i was gonna use them talked to eagle directly. I told them my setup hp and rpms and they said whats the problem. According to them they will work fine but im gonna run grp's. I gave in cuz im gonna hit it really hard and dont want to take any chances. i told them 9000 rpm 850 hp n/a with around 500 spray and they jumped to tell me whats the problem. Just thought that might be helpful

I was on the phone with them today as well and he told me the same thing!!! I am a little troubled by the answer aswell!!! I spoke to Manley they told my I need a billet rod, scat told me I am taking a chance, callies told me there new ultra rod will hold up no problem, Oliver told me no problem, k1 tech "very nice people" told me I am pushing it to it's limits... I don't think I will make more than 1200hp total but is the Rpm's tha scare me 8200+ and the stroke is 4" also the pistons is for nitrous so it's not super light... I don't know I am confused!!! I wish I won the lottery lol....

We had great success with Eagle Rods with L-19 Bolts in our previous 555, and beat the shite our of it, but we spun it to about 7500 with 4.25 stroke. Good luck.

Thanks! It's because I don't want aluminum rods... Doing alot of changes to the motor and car so I will have to do alot of testing when I come out with small pills to set up the chassis and get a base line.... If I need to change rods after 100 passes I won't even make it half the season....
