Substantially Better Than Stock
Used in a variety of applications from rebuilt stock motors to highly modified powerplants in circle track, marine and drag racing engines – including those with superchargers and/or nitrous oxide injection systems. Rod bolts are unquestionably the most important fasteners in any engine, as they are the key to the entire rotating assembly. Rod bolts support the primary tension loads caused by each rotation of the crankshaft, ARP's rod bolts are able to exert a clamping force greater than the load imposed upon the tension. ARP's high-performance versions of replacement rod bolts come in 2 options; standard and wave-lock. Also available in Pro Series.
Standard High-Performance Rod Bolts: Premium grade 8740 alloy chrome moly steel that is heat-treated to provide a tensile strength in the 200,000 psi range. Cycle testing shows to be nearly five times more reliable than stock bolts.
How do these stud/bolts compare to factory weight? Will the engine need to be rebalanced if this is just an upgrade?
