I just find it hilariously amusing that the baseline assumption from some people would be "aftermarket pistons" when the thread title itself is 9mm or 13mm rods. I mean.. who in their wrong mind would even put custom pistons on top of 9mm rods (and yet, if they did, the other rods would STILL SWAP). OP was/is talking about stock rods in a stock engine, but
Then why did the OP make the thread?

Didn't he believe what you told him?

Right?

JV's just hoping he can still sell something on here for more than $14.99.

Is it suddenly your time of month???
(unstated often in English "I" )Just not assuming ----------> I<------------ know EVERYTHING..

And maybe warn him if he ever responded that maybe--just maybe!!!!! if he's thinking of any custom forged pistons combined with ANY lousy "13mm" rods the problem of getting the rod to pin boss clearance right..

But of course you knew what I wanted to warn him about...before he's bothered to say what his plans were....

And since twitter or Pacefook type postings are the norm and they don't say what they're doing or hoping to do ultimately, that's why some people ask what the plans are.
Foolishly...

Unless you have a compelling REASON not to do it, don't bother to post.

It was after the fact, I'll expand on that in a moment, but the short answer is yes, he did.

You never fail to live up to expectations the ol' ad-hominem agitator (tm)

I didn't suggest nor state that I knew everything, that should've been pretty clear from my initial post.

stock short bad, long forged good. I might have hinted at that earlier today.

Really though, and you know this John, you're just in it for the shens; no one is going to spend money on forged pistons to run stock rods. that doesn't really happen with *any* car group. So then why would you come out of the gate thinking that?

[expanded]
OP posted the same question on facebook, and I replied with a link to this thread. It was then explained that english is not his first language, and he was having trouble understanding what some of the people ( :cough:John:cough: ) were getting at. We briefly covered the mechanical aspects, then of course I asked what the goals were and what the setup was going to be.. a long-life ~250hp setup that's overbuilt because parts availability wherever he's from is difficult at best (It sounds like Brasil), so he'd rather not break anything as he can't just jog down to the ol jy and get another engine (incidentally... neither can I anymore--that's kinda depressing really)

Again, your time of the month? I siad I was assuming I didn't know everything because the guy didn't state what his short or long term goals were


Stop looking for offense..Your presumptions about me have been wrong consistently since the very first response you ever did. Quit assuming you know--or even have a clue--as to what I am doing or saying unless it is addressed directly and clearly to you.
If something is unclear, ask questions.

Like I did with the Oh Pea.

I'd go down to the local junkyard and buy me a running redblock but mine all still run, so I go take piss instead.

But Kenny buy my for sale H beamed longer then stock 2.5L steel stroker cranked hot roddy motor..

Calm down, Mr Kavanaugh, just because it wasn't on your calendar doesn't mean it's the same for the rest of us
