Connecting Rod

(Toyota Journal / Chromoly H-Beam)

Are you about to rebuild your 20/22R/T/E power plant and would like to have something between stock rods and hardcore crossbeams? How about a set of forged H-beams for well under $400? After a couple of decades dealing with different H-beam connecting rods we decided to start making our very own rods, setting a new industry standard and at a very attractive price! LC Engineering’s H-beams are your best option for either rebuilding your performance engine with up to 600HP or just replacing your worn out stock connecting rods on your daily driver.

The LC Engineering H-Beam 4340 Forged Chromoly 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 superior fatigue life. The rod cap is forged separately so that the grain runs perpendicular to the load forces which further strengthens the rod.

LC Engineering rods include a higher content of nickel & chromium, which increases the strength & fatigue life without making the rod brittle. Every rod is shot peened to stress relieve the metal. LC Engineering x-rays, sonic tests, and Magna-fluxes each rod to ensure quality. Every LC Engineering 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 a floating piston pin.

The last step before each set is cased is they get bundled in weight-matched sets within 5 grams! The LC Engineering H-Beam connecting rods are 86 grams lighter per rod than a stock Toyota connecting rod. When thinking of that in grams it may not seem like very much, but when you add it all up that’s a 3/4 pound reduction in rotating mass. Less rotating mass means quicker throttle response, faster revving and less wear to the bearings and crankshaft.

LC Engineering’s rods are ready to run; installation instructions & bolt lubricant are included. Complete set of 4 rods, includes ARP rod bolts and Moly Lube.

These rods have the Toyota Journal and made to fit the stock Toyota Crankshaft. These rods have bearing tang on one side only like the factory rods.When installing these connecting rods, LC Engineering recommends following the direction of the “Original” tang orientation from Toyota and all should face the drivers side of the block.

5 of 5 Perfect August 10, 2023
Reviewer: Tanner T from Alabama  
Got these because my factory rods were ruined with a spun bearing. These came in and looked too notch. I’m be run them in my new rebuild for a few months and can’t say a bad thing about them.
