I'm sure I remember someone on here saying the rods from the old ford engine's fit and are much much stronger than the standard one's

But I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm worng tho

There were no srronger pushords sold for the 5 as far as i'm aware, yes the pushrids from the old pre-crossflow engine but they will need modding to fit them and also head needs little machining too

To be honest you shouldn't have a need to fit stronger pushrods, the standard ones are more than up to the job

I only ever bent 2 pushrods when I had my old blue 5, that was revving it to 7200 rpms & 24 psi boost... manifold... once it hit 30 psi without any probs  :mrgreen:  
I think James had 7800rpms on the rollers with a VNT as well.
