I have seen many rod failures with Carillo rods that were not the fault of the builder. Small ends breaking off.
Talk about catastrophic failure. The whole case gets sawed in half. The only other Porsches rods that I've seen break at the small end were Titanium and those were in 700 hp 935. We all know Ty rods work harden causing failure but what could cause the Carillo rod failure? I don't have an answer but it was troublesome enough for Carillo to redesign their rods.
