Wiseco Boostline rod for evo opinions?

Does anyone have more detailed info for evo application of this new Wiseco connecting rods? (Especially weight?)

http://www.enginelabs.com/features/p...ethink-design/

If it does have both advantages of H-beam and I-beam, it would be a good option.

I saw one online vendor sells at $640, so not much cheaper than most I-beams.

I just ordered some from realstreet... should be in this week hopefully. The only weird thing is that it seems like they do not offer a 625+ rod bolt upgrade... but I do not really plan on revving the car super high so I will be keeping my fingers crossed on the the ARP 2000's. Plus many engine builders used arp 2000's and set many records past any current expectations of my car.

finally got them in a few weeks ago. Very pretty and boxed very well... haven't put them in yet due to funds restrictions at the current time. Been laid off for about 18 months. I have pics on my instagram @dulaix1

I didn't like how the rods have a lot of non radiused edges

They are radiused where needed, on the inside corners.

I'm American to the bone, hell yea, *****, beers and bikes. Though I've also come to realize this means jack **** anymore honestly!!

I also thought I read this was not the case anyway and they are in fact made here. Let me see if I can find it as I was reading on a bunch of rods the other night trying to find the right choice for my build. Ugghh quite the daunting task honestly, I gave up for now. I am down to a decision on about 4 sets so that's a plus.


Edit: Yup you're right, in the article posted it says tested and finished here. I'm sure they are actually made somewhere in Asia. Curious to know where my other options are made, don't honestly care anymore as long as they're rated to my HP goal

I was told by Manley, pretty much ALL H-beams are made in Asia and finished here, including their own. Manley I beams are made in USA.

Carrillo rods are manufactured in the U.S. That is what I went with, their Pro H beams are strong, quality rods and they are made in California.

Wiseco have been know to be mid range components. Good for a budget build with mid rpm/power levels in mind. Normally plain Jane design. But this rod looks interesting. Hopefully it plays the part as much as it looks the part. As far as the bolts go, why not upgrade them yourself prior to putting it together. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of the cure.
