    There's nothing that is much bigger than the 3.3 that will drop right in. Only 1 I can think of is the OS .21 (tz or tm). It's a small block .21 compared to the 3.3 which is a .20.

    Got worried the other day, thought I jacked mine up. I was driving my Jato around my uncle's house, they have high (2 or 3 inch) curbs. So I'd hit those and get some good air....well one of the jump I let go of the gas as it hit the curb and when the back wheels hit it the whole car flipped over. It landed on its top and skid a good couple feet. Escaped with only a few scratches on the head protector.

    No that won't fit in the jato without modding the mount and the ez start won't work either. That's a true big block. The os 21tm is a direct fit.

    Who makes the aftermarket conrod for the 3.3? Davis diesel? Whats a link? Thanks
    found the link. Has anyone used one of these? Does it make a difference? Are there any other companies making this upgraded part? If so who and do you have to order this directly from Davis or does someone carry for them?

    The RB conrod looks cleaner than the Davis diesel but is it better? Anyone have experience with either before I spend the money?

    Both rods are exellent the RB you see a little more rpm and power out of it. It's not alot nothing you can notice. I have data recorders and I see the little differences in the 2 rods
