tech info on carillo rods for the boss 5.4's?

im after anyone that has fitted a set of carillo rods to a 5.4, what sort of mods did you have to do to the block , crank and pistons, and how much did it cost for all the machining and parts.
im interested in this because im going to be building a blown 5.4 for a customer.


thanks in advance, damien.

Unless you are ultimately after more revs from the Boss, the standard rods are probably allright, but i would imagine you will be de-compressing the motor with new pistons, so you will change the rods whilst you are at it ???
If you are going for more revs, apparantley the timing chains fly off at about 6250rpm, id be looking into that while you are at it aswell.

Standard crank should be fine as it is forged steel, conrod replacement would definately be a worthwhile move especially with a blown motor as would a good set of forged pistons. How much power and boost are you aiming for and are you keeping the standard rev limit.

There are Billet/forged H beams available for half the price of carrillo rods. They bolt right in and require no machining (Other that a rebalance of the crank.

How much would a new stronger set of timing chains be worth, would that be all that is required to rev it higher Besides rod,pistons and billet oil pump gear. Did some one break their timing chains, everyone seems to be saying that these break very easily.
