    Yes the Gen2/3 Coyote's use the Boss 302 connecting rods. They hold a decent amount of power but if you're going over 700 I'd use a better rod since you've already got the motor apart.

    Unless cheap is free, not worth the hassle.
    If paying to balance and the cost involved in swapping, new rods/pistons.

    Yep that. I ended up buying a boss crank because of the weight we needed to add changing rods and pistons
