In another thread Alex, you said to use full floating pins in a "race" motor. Why not a street/strip motor?

I never said that I wouldn't.
The only draw back would be the noise factor.

Noise is okay as long as it goes faster.

Loud exhaust is the cure for any noises your car makes. If it rattles and you never hear it, does anyone care?? If it's still bothering you, your exhaust is too quiet. Perhaps you could add a supercharger to throw some good old fashioned blower whine into the mix.

I've run 2 engines with full floating pins. One with stock rods (no problems) and the current engine with Carillo rods(no problems). They just rev quicker!Both engines see alot of street use!
