I believe the difference in the 2 sets of con-rods posted above is the ability to use a 'bushed' wristpin which connects the piston and small end of the con-rod; compared to the early factory style pressed fit wristpin. The choice between the 2 types is usually dependent on your piston choice. USUALLY you want to use a 'floating' or bushed pin - type piston if possible.
