When it comes to building a performance engine the most important decision is selecting the rotating assembly that suits your application & exceeds your potential horsepower goals.

In high performance/high rpm applications the connecting rods take majority of the abuse yet are often over looked as people tend to find temporary success with the "budget build" however the key to building a long lasting reliable engine lies in selecting the correct conrod for your application.

What Is A Conrod?

The term Conrod is short for Connecting Rod. They have one simple but extremely important job which is connect the Crankshaft to the Pistons.

They are responsible for pulling the piston down and pushing it back up with the stroke of the crankshaft hence the reason they take majority of the abuse. 
The right conrod design comes down to the individual application as rods can be found in multiple designs such as H Beam, I Beam & A Beam.
They are also made out of different materials such as Forged Steel, Aluminium & Billet Steel to suit the relevant applications also which makes selecting the perfect rod for your build paramount.
