Aluminum rods k20/24

I just wanted to get an idea if anyone would be interested.

There is a local company building aluminum rods for a great price. They are a fairly new company, but I am working to line them up with some of the sport compact applications. They have just finished design and FEA(finite element analysis) software stress analysis of a set of K24 rods they are building for me.
All parts are cut on the CNC; the FEA showed very good results, but we are going to build a couple and break them just to compare results to the software analysis.
I should have pictures in a couple weeks, the rods go for $400.00 for a set of 4.

Race use...aluminum rods are fine due to limited usage.

Street much do you value your block?

Titanium rods are fine for both, but pricey. They are used in the 1500+ HP Pro Mod Mountain Motors that are both supercharged and on the bottle, so the brittleness tag is a common misconception.

Most rod companies have gone to a heavy-duty steel rod design for high HP and a lighter version for N/A use. The new Crower Maxi-Light rods are about 100 grams lighter than the standard billet and deliver greater throttle response (like aluminum) but in a more reliable material (steel).



Whats the pric eof the Maxi-light rods for the k24???
