Danger Will Robinson,

We don't know much about mpdevelopments background (no offense). He maybe correct on this but I've not heard this before. When I checked the clearances on my rod bearings after 90k miles and 3 race seasons they showed about .0015 clearance. Clearly the further you get from stock on these engines the more chances you are taking. My own opinion is that stock rod bolts and clearances are fine for 7500 rpm and under (not on 3.2s). This is what I have on my car. The problem would be if the engine is over-reved. (money shift). In that case a prudent man would replace the rod bolts (Russ taught me that the hard way).
