When 500 to 600 horsepower or more is expected, a stronger
rod is recommended.
LCEngineering Pro Chrome-moly H- Beam Rods will fit the bill. Eagle 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. Eagle 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. Eagle x-rays, sonic tests and
magna-fluxes each rod to insure quality. Every Eagle 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.
