LCE Connecting Rod Chrome-moly H-Beam 3RZ (Toyota Journal)
**Must Use Special Forged Piston 1014375 & Rod Bearings**
When 300 horsepower or more is expected, a
stronger rod is recommended. LCEngineering Pro Chrome-moly H- Beam Rods fit that bill.
LCE H-Beam 4340 Forged Chrome-moly Steel Connecting Rods are manufactured from a two-piece forging process. This process forces the grain into the shape of a connecting rod, resulting in a superior fatigue life.
The rod cap is forged separately so that the grain runs perpendicular to the load forces which strengthens the rod. LCE includes a higher content of nickel & chrome, which increases the strength & fatigue life without making the rod brittle.
Every rod is shot peened to stress relieve the metal. LCE x-rays, sonic tests and magna-fluxes each rod to insure quality. Every rod is multi-stage heat treated and includes 7/16" ARP 8740 bolts which can handle up to 210,000psi.
Silicon bronze bushings are inserted for floating piston pin.
Each rod set purchased are balanced end to end of each other +/-5 grams. Each rod is 160 grams lighter than a factory Toyota connecting rod. A total rotating weight loss of 1.5 pounds which will make for a quicker throttle response, faster revving and less wear to the bearings and crankshaft.
Stock connecting rod weight is 836 grams as compared to these H-Beams at 675 grams. LCE H-Beam rods are ready to run; installation instructions, ARP rod bolts and Moly Lube are included. (Complete set of 4 rods)
Warning: Will Not Work With The Stock Toyota Components. Must use a different piston and rod bearing.
