If you are going to build a high HP ej22, ej20 or ej18 it would be a good idea to use the ej22t rods.
LOL dont even get me started. ALL subaru rods and cranks are manufactured the same exact way. They are all forged or not forged...it doesnt matter to me. The EJ22t rods have been known to fail at about 350whp, same as any other non STi rod. Subaru wouldnt go to the trouble to change the way they manufacture parts for a somewhat limited production USDM 160hp car.
