    seems to be the ONLY place around that sells crowler rods, any suggestions in sizing or "cap screw" vs "nut bolt" ? reasons why would help me to understand aswell. I know im gonna need a beefy(its whats for dinner, innout! :flag: ) bottom end runing the nitrous+high boost, so whatcha think ?

    How much power do you plan to make?

    Any place that sells crowers can get them for the 2.3....I'm sure even summit or jegs can do so for cheap. I believe the preference is the cap screws over the nut/bolt combo.
