VH45DE Forged Eagle Connecting Rods
Upgrade your engine's horsepower with a set of Eagle ESP H-beam connecting rods. Their 2-piece, forged, vacuum-degassed, 4340-certified steel construction provides outstanding strength, while still weighing much less than stock rods. Each rod is multi-stage heat-treated, x-rayed, sonic-tested, magnafluxed, 100 percent machined, and shot-peened to stress-relieve the metal. These rods have ARP 8740 7/16" rod bolts and precision cap alignment sleeves to positively locate each rod cap, silicon bronze bushings for floating pins. These connecting rods are the perfect choice for engines producing up to (and over) 600 horsepower. Each set comes with Instructions and rod bolt lubrication. These rods are 100g lighter than the OEM connecting rods. This totals for an 800g weight savings on your rotational mass! ARP 2000 Fasteners are also available but are not stocked.
