Tomei began operations in 1968 as a race car tuner in Japan. Over the last 40 years Japan has emerged as one of the leaders in automotive research, racing, and culture. Tomei products have been utilized in nearly every motor sport imaginable. Tomei's racing heritage means their research and design team have first hand knowledge of the extreme demands racing puts on an engine. Using only the highest quality materials means that Tomei's products can handle the intense strain and heat a purpose built engine will experience whether it be on the street or the track. Tomei's attention to detail is second to none. All of their products are thoroughly researched and engineered to achieve optimal efficiency. Because of even miniscule differences in measurements can cause catastrophic engine failure, all Tomei products fall within strict tolerances. Tomei machines all of their engine components to enhance airflow and ensure proper fitment and seal.Forged ConstructionBuilt for high Horsepower/Torque Race useDecreases chance of engine failure
Connecting rods are one of the most crucial components of a high performance engine, their purpose is to connect the piston to the crankshaft. This means they must be able to handle a great amount of stress. Most engines use cast connecting rods from the factory. Cast metal is more likely to fracture when stressed in high temperature/high rpm conditions. Breaking a connecting rod causes catastrophic engine failure and very costly repair bills. Due to their H beam construction these connecting rods can handle much greater forces. Their unique shape dissipates the intense stress that connecting rods are subjected to thousands of times every minute. This is important in race engines because they are in constant high RPM operation for long periods of time.
Mr. Seiichi Suzuki initially forged Tomei is a tuning factory for race cars back in 1968. From that day on, Tomei achieved excellent results in various motor sports categories. Tomei was then recognized for its technology, performance and reliability that we had cultivated into our own design products and had a large support base from motor sports end users and tuners.
With the new market trends and demands, motoring enthusiasts wanted better performance to suit the new modern lifestyle. This trend helped set the stage where originality can play an active part in the motor sports scene and personal motoring lifestyle.
