Connecting Rods for High Performance and Racing Engines

Connecting rods for high performance and racing engines are available in many different designs, applications and materials. A restored muscle car replaces different demands on a con rod than a high rpm motocross bike does. We offer a huge selection of different connecting rods to cover a huge assortment of different engine applications and requirements.

The most popular rod types are the I beam and H beam, but there are many others. Connecting rods are made from many different materials such as 5140 steel, 4340 steel, aluminum and even titanium. The style, material, dimensions and fasteners are all chosen based on the rods intended use. Connecting rods are one of the most highly stressed components in an internal combustion engine. To insure maximum performance and reliability the best connecting rod possible for your application should be chosen.

 Selecting Connecting Rods

Selecting the proper connecting rod for your intended use is critical to building an engine that will provide superior performance and reliability. To make a decision as to what is the best rod for your engine project you have to consider many things. Variables such as the way the engine will be used, intended rpm range, power level, racing class rules and the budget for your project all come into play. It is always best to go with a stronger rod than needed as choosing a rod that is barely adequate for the job will often lead to problems.

Connecting Rods and Supercharged, Nitrous or Turbo Engines

Another very critical item to consider is if you will be using a power adder on your engine. The use of a supercharger, turbo or NOS is more common today than ever before. Each of these power adders increases the loads that your connecting rods must be able to withstand and transfer to the crankshaft. We offer a wide range of con rods that are designed to stand up to the unique demands of nitrous, turbocharged and supercharged engines.
