As far as rods go, you could have originals resized, new bolts, etc.. Once again though, the cost to do it almost buys a new set of rods..
Oh well, go with the kit, what the hey? It's a plus all the way around.
My next question is, will my 452 heads work and if so how much head work needs to be done?
Maybe the next question should be what camshaft am I going to run?
