Do i have The wrong rods?

Assuming the rods are the same width, you’ll need some aluminum or brass/bronze spacers made to take up the space. Pretty common issue with piston steered rods and aftermarket pistons if the rod width ain’t specified when ordering.

How does the other end fit on the crankshaft?

It fits on The crankshaft

What is the side clearance between the big end of the rod and the crank? Use a feeler gauge.

I dont have The crankshaft with me right now but The original rods is 25 and The new rods is 25mm to

Looks like the Wiseco's are designed for crank steered rods, OE are piston steered. Check the fit of the new rods on the crank, should have around .010" or so side clearance.

Quick question: is the pin height the same on both pistons (distance from the center of pin hole to the top of the piston?)
The pistons will work as is, you just need some spacers made for the small end of the rod.
Or get some stock length rods that are crank steered.

Next time buy rods which are crank steered. Makes choice of pistons easier.

I’d contact MaXpeeding as I’ve got their rods fitted to my Wiseco 16v pistons and they fit fine.
