I think chevrolet had an engine that had plastic rods in it. just because they were cheap and easy to mass produce. that was way back in the day though, kinda around the same time they tried the displacement on demand with the caddilacs and failed horribly. yes i know... it sounds stupid, but, i was taught by not only one, but three different instructors said the same thing, that GM had put plastic rods in engines. big mistake, but...money was an issue.
If you think about it, what kind of idiot in the engines design department says..."lets press some plastic dust material in to the shape of a connecting rod and put it in a bore making it move in a reciprocating motion continouisly at 800-5500 rpm. it should hold out."
