Default Waglers New Budget Rods

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
