Mark, do you know if anyone has sent rods in for analysis? Did they go back to Carrillo or an independent party? I would be interested to hear what was determined to be the cause of the failure. It would be nice if someone could send a failed rod or three to Mat to let him take a look. With his knowledge in metallurgy, engineering, and engines, I bet he could give some reliable information that would be untainted by a monetary influenced bias.
As for the comment on the Carrillo HD rods, it was my understanding they were only making those for the Cummins crowd right now.
At UCC they had a set there for a hybrid kit in the Duramax. They came out 4 months after I ordered my hybrid kit (standard Carrillo rod structure/thicknesses). From my understanding, they are available for order as they are listed in the product sheets on their website.
