I've ran many stock rods before and never had a problem I think the weak link on them are the bolts and if I remember right I think gm used 190,000 psi bolts the LS1 which is the same as most arp bolts. I had a brain fart twice with my stock rod/cast crank motor and forgot I was in second during the caution and when the green flag flew I was over 8200 rpm by the time I made it to the flagman and it stayed together. Must have been holy water in the radiator.
