Starting to build engine.

I've got a 5.4 block and 4 valve dohc cylinder heads on the way. My question is how much will these rods hold they are stock cast rods. I might possibly supercharge but i'm not sure I really do not want to buy new rods. If I can get away with it I'll keep them and just buy forged pistons. My chevy 350 is almost done so I am getting ready to start on the car.

Re: Starting to build engine.

Anyone know the horsepower rating on connecting rods and crank for a 5.4?

Re: Starting to build engine.

I would NOT go over 500hp on rods and 6500 rpm on crank
