Aftermarket rods for 3800IISC?


To boost or not to boost
May 26, 2001
Anyone know of where to get aftermarket FORGED rods to replace the CAST factory ones that came in the 3800 Series II Supercharged engine?
I asked a Bonneville guy (Scott Cook) with a nearly completely redone SC 3.8 about the forged rods and this is what he said:

According to Richard Lee [builder of the Spirit of Bonneville, Salt Flats car], several companies will custom make forged L67 connecting rods.

I stuck with modified stock connecting rods, because Richard Lee felt they would be good to about 530 horsepower.

Hope this helps!
