Lunati Connecting Rods
Designed for higher horsepower and more RPM, these Pro Series™ Connecting Rods are made for those of us who are performance driven. Derived from aerospace 4340 alloy steel, these premium quality connecting rods are perfect for all-out race engines, Street-Strip engines, and even Street Rods. As always, these Lunati® connecting rods come with ARP® 2000 rod bolts and are American made to the highest quality standards.
Connecting rods receive some of the highest stress levels of any bottom end engine component. The forces a rod receives when the piston direction reverses from top dead center can exceed 12,000 lbs. in a race application. When you stop and think about how much stress that is, you realize how important a quality connecting rod is for your race engine. Lunati's fully machined I-beam connecting rods are on average, stronger and lighter than competitor's steel connecting rods. Each set is weight matched to +/- 1.5 grams and utilize ARP® cap hardware, providing you with a top of the line connecting rod that can handle most anything you can throw at it.
H_BEAM SUPERLIGHT RODS
Our Superlight Series of H-Beam rods are designed for engine builds where overall rotating mass is equally important as overall strength. This line of Lunati connecting rods feature an H-beam design forged from 4340 premium quality forging. Special services are then performed to each individual rod including; heat treatment, stress relieving, shot peened and magnafluxing. To give you an idea of the weight difference, a name brand competitor's H-beam rod weighs 660 grams, while a Lunati LS1 superlight rod weighs only 605 grams. On top of that, a Lunati rod is longer (6.125), providing more stroke, and are exceptionally stronger. ARP® cap hardware is used to ensure proper clamping and high rpm security.
Ultimate strength and affordability is what the Lunati line of H-beam connecting rods are all about. Lunati rods are forged from aircraft grade 4340 alloy steel forgings...and that is just the beginning. They are then heat treated, stress relieved, shot peened and magnafluxed to ensure the highest level of durability. Each set is weight matched to +/- 1.5 grams and utilize ARP® cap hardware. Ideal for high performance street & mild race engines. Horsepower capability depends on various factors including rpm, poweradders, tuning, etc
