I have just bought a set of x rods. Been resized etc...i just need a set of arps for in them, now my question is:

On the cap where the "X" is stamped into it. Some are clear as day, some are not so clear, and some you can barely see. Is this normal?

Also some of the cap forgings are smoother than others. LIke the ones that are real clear to read the "x" are smoother while the "X" that you can barely see are rougher texture where its not machined??? Am i ok or am i just being anal?

You're ok, that's the common variation from castings being of different times, from different lots, etc.
Keep in mind if you're just now going to replace the rod bolts, then the rods will need to be resized all over again, since they'll out of round after installing the new bolts.

Yes they definitely have to be resized no matter what bolt you are installing in them.
