1000+ RWHP - Wrist Pin Questions
Oliver Connecting rods offers two wrist pin diameters in their rods. Factory .866" and the SBC .927" pin....When (if ever) would it be necessary to run the larger pin in a 5.4L TT engine? Engine will probably make 1100-1200 RWHP with a 7500 RPM redline. Please post your answers. Keep it technical please.

I couldn't get wrapped around using a larger heavier pin, when I've seen guys making 1500HP with a 9310 heavy wall unit as you described above....Thanks for the input.

Our pleasure! As you have clearly noted, a pin should only be as heavy as needed to handle the power, everything else is wasted on parasitic loss, best of luck again!

I have some questions for you whenever you have time available. Seems as though my setup will be fairly close to the combo in the shop car.

I use a .220 9310 pin from Trend. Very stout pieces and decently priced as well.
