3.5L?!!!!! You mean 2.35L? You have a massive sleeve setup?! Yes all EJ rods are forged due to the slightly increased stress of horizontal piston design. It really depends on what kind of setup your trying to do to if you need rods. If you intend to push the redline way up then almost certainly you need the rods + balanced crank.
