Connecting Rods

Does anyone know if Ford used different sources for the Connecting Rods on the 2.0?

Different sources ?

There were 2 rods made for the Focus 2.0 DOHC

The STD Focus used a powder rods
The SVT used a forged rod

Those were the only 2 types I know of

What are you trying to do ?

The powdered 'sintered' rod there. Ford most likely makes them themselves.
