Shopper Award

Eagle's commitment to quality and service has resulted in customer loyalty and satisfaction. This, in turn, has fueled rapid growth over the years. Eagle added crankshafts to our lineup a few years later as well as expanding our offerings in connecting rods. Continuous design improvements and improvements in materials and manufacturing techniques have resulted in Eagle being the largest and most respected aftermarket connecting rod and crank manufacturer in the industry. We never stop researching ways to make our products lighter, stronger, more efficient to manufacture, and more diverse. When you stop moving forward, you get passed by the competition. Forged 4340 steel H-Beam extreme duty connecting rods feature a two-piece forging and a fully machined, shot-peened, and polished surface. Sizing is held to exact tolerances. Sold as a weight-matched set. For extreme competition use.

Who is EAGLE?

EAGLE SPECIALTY PRODUCTS, aka EAGLE, has been at the forefront of developing top-quality engine components. The company officially started back in 1992 but has been developing their product for ten years prior.  Since the company started, it has continuously produced some of the market's best engine components and is widely used by engine builders worldwide.

Imitated But Not Duplicated

Due to the company's success, its products have been imitated by other companies even up to the part numbers. But the similarity ends only up to how they look. EAGLE uses the finest materials and has invested in the most state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery for them to create a product that would be able to take any punishment it is subjected to. It is tested to be superior to other brands and considered the best upgrade for OEM counterparts.

No To Shortcuts

The company sets the benchmark on how valves should be properly made. Using their years of experience creating rods, they have already designed over 200 different rods and 180 crankshafts. The company does not allow cost to compromise its material used, manufacturing process, and quality test. 

High-End Quality

All of Eagle's products are made up of high-quality materials. They use certified 4340 Chromoly steel. Using their own special heat treatment process, they are able to create a product that is much stronger compared to other competitors using the same raw material. 

They manufacture their rods using a 2-piece forging process that allows the rod to be stronger. This process orients the "grain" of the metal to the direction of the stress. Eagle uses a state-of-the-art Sunnen Krossgrinding system that allows them to create perfect cuts and bore consistently.
