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, the Tomei H-Beam 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.Features:
- Forged Construction
- Built for high horsepower race use
- Decreases chance of engine failure at high RPMs
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.
