Are you looking for OEM or Aftermarket connecting Rods?
If you are looking for a good used connecting rod, contact Crash Chris on this forum.. He has 2 left ($30.70) shipped. They are from a 1997, but the connecting rods from 1990 - 2001 for the 5sfe are the same. I just purchased one for my 5sfe build from him.
every 5sfe I have looked up through the automotive exchange, the cheapest I found was $600.00 for a good running 5sfe recently. I bought a good used 5sfe last year for $350.00 but that's about what they run .. between 300-600.00 USD for a good running 5sfe. I did pick up a second spare 5sfe today for $150.00 but it has a dead cylinder (#1). he got a hella deal on the 5sfe for $50.00. Better take care of that one! hehehe
He actually bought that motor to use the crank because he was building a stroker 3sgte, but he ran into money problems. I am thinking about buying it from him and building myself a stroker; I want more power in my mr2!
from the pricing ive done i wont have much more in my motor to rebuild it than if i replaced it with a used one so i figure i will just spring for the extra now. im looking for all 4 rods though, oem or aftermarket. either will be fine.
