I am building my 16v turbo and would like to know which company has the best price on rods for my car. Or how well the factory rods hold up if they are shotpeened with arp bolts. Any suggestions.

I don't know what they will handle. I usually hear people talking about how strong VW rods are, but I'm sure they have a limit. I would be somewhat concerened with running stock rods at 20 psi.
Someone knows....Anyone?
