Eagle con-rods (set of four)
Engine code: Honda K20A & K20A2
Car: Honda Civic Type R EP3 01-06 & Integra Type R DC5 00-06
Eagle ESP Connecting Rods are manufactured from a TWO-PIECE FORGING. The forging process forces the grain into the shape of a connecting rod, resulting in a superior fatigue life. The rod cap is forged separately so that the grain runs perpendicular to the load forces, which strengthens the connecting rod. Many aftermarket connecting rods are manufactured from 4340 steel. 4340 specs allow a range of different materials to achieve the desired results. Although it is a more expensive process, all Eagle "ESP" 3-D connecting rods also include higher content of nickel & chrome, which increases the strength & fatigue life without making the connecting rod brittle. Extensive testing has proven Eagle's two-piece forging superior to any one-piece forging on the market! All Eagle "ESP" Rods are clearly identified. Proper rod bolt torque is vital to connecting rod life. A rod bolt fastner is without question the highest stressed fastener in the engine. The big end bore of the connecting rod is a stressed bore in much the same way as cylinders are on a block. It is equally important to torque properly to provide proper strength & to insure the big end of the rod sizing is correct. Improper torque will result in premature rod failure! Beware of connecting rods that do not include torque specifications.
Eagle "ESP" H Beam Connecting Rods Feature: First connecting rod manufacturer to machine on the state-of-the-art Sunnen Krossgrinding™ System to hold extremely tight tolerances! Center to center length +/- .001 Big End Barrel / Bellmouthing +/- .0002 Big End Bore +/- .0002 -- Pin end bore +/- .0002 Stroker Design provides cam clearance for 3.800 on small block Chevy engines with no modification. Weight savings between 30-70 grams (depending on rod length). Reduce balancing cost! 3-D Design offers the advantages of reduced weight without sacrificing any of our original rod's strength, offering maximum strength to weight ratio. 2-Piece forging for increased strength. Ready to run, installation instruction and bolt lubricant included. Silicon bronze bushings for floating piston pins. Multi-stage heat treated. Packaged in weight matched sets end to end +/- 1 gram. Certified 4340 steel, vacuum degassed to remove impurities. Each forging is X-rayed, sonic tested and magnafluxed to insure quality. All surfaces are 100% machined. Shot peened to stress relieve the metal. Precision alignment sleeves positively locate the rod cap, maintaining big end bore size and eliminating cap walk.
Includes: 1 Set of 4 Connecting Rods (enough for one engine), ARP Rod Bolts, assembly hardware and spec sheet
