Connecting Rod Bolts

Connecting Rod Bolts are Critical Engine Fasteners!

When it comes to performance engines you want to replace the weak, one-time use factory stretch bolts in your engine with RACEWARE™ 220,000 PSI tensile strength to prevent serious engine damage. It’s common knowledge that the Porsche 3.2L 911 and later long stroke engines can fatigue the small 9mm OE connecting rod bolts, causing them to fail with very expensive or complete engine destruction. An ounce of prevention is smarter than a pound of cure.

The Porsche 944/968 and 928 engines have big, heavy connecting rods that place a lot of strain on the con rod bolts when these engines are revved high, which makes them susceptible to failure when these engines are driven hard or Modded. Now you can replace the OE 944/968/928 Con Rod Bolts with reliable, 220,000 PSI tensile strength RACEWARE con rod bolts for peace of mind.

VW’s 8mm con rod stretch-bolts and nuts used in the water-cooled engines are a known weak link in these engines, especially when it comes to Modding. The small 8mm diameter places a very high unit loading on these bolts and they eventually fail, especially with high revs or in high horsepower applications. The RACEWARE 220,000 PSI con rod bolts increase reliability and can be used over again, unlike the OE stretch bolts that must be replaced each time the rods are removed.
