(Toyota Journal / Chromoly H-Beam)
When it comes to the highest quality components for Toyotas, LC Engineering has been the #1 Provider for almost 30 years. We have been supplying everybody from professional racers and rock crawlers, to show trucks and daily drivers. After a couple of decades dealing with different H-beam connecting rods, we decided to start making our very own H-beams, setting a new industry standard and with a much more attractive and easy-to-afford 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 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 superior fatigue life. The rod cap is forged separately so that the grain runs perpendicular to the load forces, which strengthens the rod.
LC Engineering 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. 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.
Each rod set is packaged in weight-matched sets end to end +/-5 gram! The LC Engineering H-Beam connecting rods are 86 grams each lighter than a stock Toyota connecting rod. When measuring in Grams that’s not a lot, but when you add it all up that’s 3/4 pounds of less 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. Stronger and lighter than stock connecting rods, they come in sets of four. Includes ARP rod bolts and Moly Lube.
