Eagle Mopar 383 Connecting Rod Info and Specifications

Eagle is well known for their high quality steel H beam connecting rods. Eagle products are found in everything from serious Mopar, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth street cars, to hot street strip cars, to all out drag, oval and road racing engines. Eagle rods are far stronger than the stock original rods.

Eagle H beam 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 rod. Eagle H rods are forged from 4340 grade steel and although it is a more expensive process, all ESP Eagle rods also include a higher content of nickel and chrome, which increases the strength and fatigue life without making the connecting rod brittle.

If you compare the price of magnafluxing, reconditioning and installing new ARP bolts (this should be done even if you use the stock rods, as the original stock rod bolts are the weakest link) into an old set of stock rods to the exceptional value of a set of modern, far stronger Eagle rods the choice is pretty clear. Upgrade to new rods, rather than spending money on old, weaker OEM production rods.

  • 3-D design offers the advantages of reduced weight without sacrificing strength
  • 2 piece forging for increased strength
  • Installation instructions, torque specs and bolt lubricant included
  • Eagle Connecting Rods come with ARP 8740 Capscrews Standard, ARP 2000 bolt upgrade available
  • Silicon bronze bushings installed for use with floating wrist pins
  • Multi-stage heat treated
  • Packaged in weight matched sets
  • Certified 4340 steel, vacuum degassed to remove impurities
  • Each forging is X-rayed, sonic tested and magnafluxed to insure quality
  • Shot peened to stress relieve the metal
  • Precision Alignment Sleeves positively locate the rod cap, maintaining big end bore size and eliminating cap walk.
