While you're on the subject, how about the same question for Pistons?  Are most of you using hard anodized or coated ones?

Thanks
Chris

"It is true that Michael Giannone originally started GRP, which at one time stood for "Giannone Racing Products." The business was never sold, and there was certainly never an agreement that Michael Giannone leave the connecting rod business for any period of time! I am not going to go into detail here, but if you are really that interested, the information can be found in Colorado State public record. Michael began MGP "Michael Giannone Performance" in 1996 a brief time after discontinuing involvement with GRP. The two companies have absolutely no relation, other than the fact that both were started by Michael Giannone himself. MGP and GRP are not "brother" companies, but rather two separate companies all together."
   I will take Michael over the "Steam" any-day. Superior bolts, superior serrations, and superior honing.

  ^^^  True
  Some will argue the technology left GRP with Michael.

DITTO! My engine builder did a lot or leg work after my venolia mishapps Hagen and Manzo both highly pushed for MGP and those TAFC junks are up in the stratoshpere. Far more superior in my opinion for what it is worth.
