I have tried and tried to find a set of used dohc rods for project squishy. But no luck, so my poor luck has forced me to look at ebay . I still could not find a factory set of rods. All in all I ended up taking a look at a set of maxspeed rods

the mini cooper guys swear by them. Have any on tried them out!

I use spool h beam rods in my gti race car and have had no issues with them at all!! And the pricing is pretty reasonable.

I have those, but haven't assemble the engine yet.

They look good.
