does anyone have any input on how much abuse gen3 rods will take or should i just save money to buy h-beams? (i planning on 18 to 20psi and 100 or maybe even 150 wet shot nitrous)

gen 3 rods arnt to bad, the common consensus is that they are as good as eagle rods after u put arp rod bolts in. their just a bit heavy so u cant rev as high.
if u got the money yes if you on a budget git the bolts and new bearings.
i have a stock gen 3 and am running 17psi on stock ct20b 12 months now touch wood

my moroso block filler came today hopping my crank is on its way now on the hunt for rods and pistons im trying to decide if i want to use stock gen3 rods (i found a deal) because i can get them for 50 plus 10 shipping then 20 to have them shot peened and 45+10shipping for arp bolts for a total of 135 but i can get eagle h-beams for 350+shipping so is the stock rods up to it and is the savings of 215$ worth the peace of mind of knowing the h-beams would take the pounding of friday night street fights and then be reliable enough to run my kids around to car shows and stuff so im looking for yous to sway me one way or the other thanks i personally would like to go a little cheaper if i can because it will be back on the road that much sooner but i dont want junk thats how i got to this point

my h beams came so now on to pistons (and i think total seal gapless rings) im thinking 8.5:1 or 8.0:1 and 87mm i was hopping to find these in wiseco but i cant seem to but did find them in arias http://www.atomicspeedware.com/3sgte20lbore3425in8700mmcompratio851.aspxwhat do yous thing of arias i cant find a lot on them other then paradise racing uses them so they got to be decent right?
and has any one used tworus block girdle http://twosrus.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_77&products_id=297i want this motor to last a long time but im also going to abuse it at the track so i'm doing a short fill as i used to do on my fully build 4age's but i was also thinking a block girdle to keep the mains from shifting under high boost and nitrous

just be aware 8.0 cr is going to hurt off boost drivability and general response of the motor. if your going to always run nitrous then this probably wont be an issue.
to be honest with E85 its silly to go any less than 8.5. i went 9.0 and planning on running about 21psi on E85.

are you using nitrous as anti lag or right through the rev range?

fuel is just going to be 93 octane pump gas i was leaning in the direction of 8.5 too i was worried about on the street but i figured a little lower cr would be safer on pump fuel with a bigger turbo and higher boost plus nitrous (i also have a snow preformence water/meth kit installed)
and the nitrous is used from 2nd gear and up at 3200rpms to throttle lift
