Dude, after all the BS w/breaking a rod(!!) while removing the piston from it, would you do ANY business w/these hacks?

I wouldn't trust a damned thing they did, or sold me, personally.

Take your "bent" rods and run!

Need to add one thing. Powdered metal rods are forged rods. Just a different material being shaped by forging.
