With the exception of the 2000 Cobra R (Carillo) and the 2003-2004 Cobra's (Manley H-beam).

All modular engines have come with sinter forged powdered metal connecting rods.

The 4.6L SOHC passenger car engines have the weakest rods.

The Windsor (or Triton) engines use a larger connecting rod that is stronger than the passenger car engines.

The 4.6L DOHC engines use the same rods as are used in the Windsor's.

The strongest factory style rods to date are the rods used in the supercharged 5.4L lightning.

These rods have a larger big end than the standard modular rods.
