This kit includes all necessary OEM components needed for the removal and installation of the connecting rods, along with a set of Mahle Motorsport rod bearings and ARP head studs. Read below to learn more about the included components. 

Mahle Motorsport rod bearings

Manufactured with the same technology that has been used in Formula 1 racing for years, these tri-metal bearings offer better wear characteristics than others on the market, taking abuse from high horsepower and rpm for long periods of time. The Mahle Motorsport rod bearings are the highest quality bearings available, which is we use these bearings in all of our race engine builds.

ARP head stud kit

To keep your head securely clamped down to the block and to eliminate any chance of head gasket failure, we include a set of high strength ARP head studs. These studs replace the factory head bolts, which are one-time use only. The ARP head studs can be reused if the cylinder head needs to be removed from the engine.

OEM bolts and seals

Our kit comes complete with all OEM bolts, gaskets, seals, and sealant that are needed for the installation of IE connecting rods. We also include a replacement OEM timing cover and oil pan, which are both one-time use. A tube of assembly lube is included, which aids in a proper break-in of engine bearings.
