Curious, why Pontiac specific ?

One of the NASCAR True Value Mechanic Of The Year winners has included six-time winner Darrell Poe from the Atlantic Region. A expert engine builder, Poe's engines supply power for many racers in the region. One of the drivers includes NASCAR Cup Series Denny Hamlin winning at the Langley Short Track Showdown. The engine built by Poe used Molnar rods, as does many of his other race engines.

I think by now everyone has drawn their own conclusion which rod they’d use.

Come on Zedo. The basic generic 4340 offshore H beam is FAR stronger than the best PMD 61-62 SD rod, RAV rod or 455SD rod.
And way better than a early production mild steel rod. Heat treating just makes them harder on the outside. I can do the same with a grade 5 bolt, a torch and bucket of water. In the end its still a 5 bolt and always will be.

That type of precision machined thread is referred to as an "ACME" screw thread.
Very strong for load bearing purposes. Will support/ raise & lower tons of weight & apply tons of force too.
Used primarily on the main screws for vises, C- clamps ,jacks,pullers,machine tool feed screws and other industrial equipment where a high load on the driven threads is required.

That is the one, and exactly how he described it.
