How much horsepower can stock 460 truck rods handle also how can you tell if they are truck or passenger car rods? Is there and year 460 crank better than the other?

The cranks are really stout. Don't use the later model external balance unless you get the flex plate & damper spacer. I have a 75 pass car crank in mine & made 750 on the dyno on the engine & another 400 with nitrous. The rods aren't bad but about 550/600 is max. The main things to look for in rods are a football shaped rod bolt & a truck part #. The latter being a little better around the small end.
