Toyota Journal VS. Pro Journal Tech NoteWhen 300 horsepower or more is expected, a stronger rod is recommended. LCEngineering Pro Chrome-moly H-Beam Rods will fit the bill.These 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. 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 ensure quality. Every LCE 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 grams!The LCE H-Beam connecting rods are 86 grams each lighter than 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. LCE rods are ready to run; installation instructions & bolt lubricant are included. Complete set of 4 rodsStronger and lighter than stock connecting rods, they come in sets of four.Includes ARP rod bolts and Moly Lube.
