Mopar 400 Connecting Rods

While you are replacing your engine pistons it is a good time to also upgrade your rotating assembly by installing modern connecting rods. Why risk damage to your rebuilt performance engine by using old stock connecting rods that have been through who knows what kind of abuse.

With the high cost of machine shop service these days you can often upgrade to far stronger modern rods for not much more than the cost of reconditioning a set of stock rods.

Eagle Chrysler 400 Connecting Rods H Beam

Eagle 4340 Steel H beam 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.

Mopar 383 H Beam Connecting Rods

  • Installation instructions, torque specs and bolt lubricant included
  • ARP 8740 Capscrews are included, ARP 2000 bolt upgrade available at an additional cost
  • Silicon bronze bushings installed for use with floating wrist pins
  • 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.
