Yes take my word!! Replace those rod bolts!! That's what failed on my 3.2 1200 miles after I bought it. PO probably ran the p*ss out of it and stretched them for me. My great luck!

I have had P-engine builders tell me that installing the ARP bolts will slightly distort the big-end of the rod because the shoulders are larger OD. After installing them and torquing, the big end should be checked for roundness.
