Default Mahle pistons with factory rods?

So I bought a car with broken ring lands on a piston so I going to put mahle pistons in, I am also going to put a 20g turbo with 1000cc Id injectors with a walbro 255 and run on e85, I'm wondering if it would be necessary with put aftermarket rods in to?

Depend on your future whp goal! A rebuild is not a regular maintenance, its time/money consuming. Its a good thing if you can afford rods, especially if the motor had old rods. You should consider what you want to do eventually!

20G on E85? I ran a 1.5XTR on E85 for ~35K miles on the stockers with no issues. You'll be fine.

I was running manley drop in's with stock rods on my 07. E85 produced 485/456 for a good 6 months, guess what happened... bend a rod. 12K later im upgrading for future endeavors. if youre getting the cylinder walls hones or bored, may as well do rods while youre at it.

I ran over a year and 28K miles at that power level on stock rods and pistons.

Tune, esp with E85 can be the biggest factor there.
