lol, did not notice it was in the Esprit section. Was just browsing new posts.
If forged H beam connecting rods worked in a stroked blown SBC, I don't see why they wouldn't work in an Esprit, as long as someone makes them and you do a balance on the reciprocating assembly. They handled a few horsepower.
You could check with Hypersport Engineering in Buford GA. They do quite a bit of work with the Esprits.
