Default Whats Stronger??

Ok, vitaras are ordered, so now its just what i mount them on. Whats the stronger rod- JDM D15B, or D16A6. No, i do not have money for forged rods, i have these to work with.

I just know for a fact the JDMD15 is a great motor for boost, much better than the A6, so I assumed the rods would be better.

Sorry to have to ask this, but is "shot peening" just sand blasting with metal *****?
