Waglers New Budget Rods

Does not seem like a bad price. Anyone on here testing them out?

Hmmm.. not bad

I would be interested if they did some sort of packaged deal, like there rotating assembly. Otherwise its like the same old argument, the extra cost of 800 to get a rod that you don't have to worry about. Since when is 900-1000 HP enough if its a nozzle/turbo/CP3 change away from 1XXX HP.

What does "as forged" mean?

I think it could be a great option for people not going "all out", like the BrianCrower and Manley rods are. The more competition, the better. :)

As Forged means they are basically only touching the bores on both ends with a machine. The Carrillo rods get machined everywhere to get from the forging to the finished product.

Possibly not stress relieved (shot peened) or Rockwell tested? Just a guess.

Man I just need to find a set of these used and I'll be in the game lol

Thanks, guys.

I wonder how close the weights are since they are not fully finished machined? Or would they still be pretty close?

That's a good question. Even my Howard's rods needed some material ground off.

These would be great for a guy like me who only wants 800hp..

I don't believe Carrillo rods are machined everywhere. They are shotpeened, that's why they are so smooth. Although I have only seen pics of them.

Wagler wouldn't put out trash, so I'll bet they handle 1000hp just fine.

I was that guy. then added another 215hp lol

They are some serious beef, I saw them 2 weeks ago at Waglers event. I wouldn't be apprehensive about putting 1000 hp to them. I was hoping they would come in at around $1500 but $1700 isn't bad.
