Adam is right. Your rods are. Steel, and probably not much else.

Personally, I don't see you pushing the power envelope for forged internals. The head stud thread engagement is the weakest area "we" know of with these motors. I'd say you are fine without doing the cryo treatment and I wouldn't risk it myself.
