Integrated Engineering is proud to manufacture the forged H beam connecting rod, the highest quality connecting rod set available for European applications at a reasonable price. This is accomplished through careful industry leading design practices, manufacturing, and strict quality control processes. For years Integrated Engineering H beam rods have been the workhorse of our line-up providing excellent performance right out of the box. With very high reliability even in extreme applications our H beam design has remained the top choice in builds up to 700+ BHP, even found in four-cylinder cars into the 800+ BHP range.
The material specification and treatment is equally important to producing a quality forged connecting rod. Integrated Engineering H beam rods feature 4340 Chrome Moly steel, formed into shape using a 2 piece forging for the highest possible fatigue life. The material is multi-stage heat treated to ensure the highest possible fatigue strength as well as good dimensional stability. This feature ensures that our big ends stay round for a lifetime of bearing trouble free service. Following this pattern of high quality, included ARP 2000 rod bolts are standard in all of our connecting rod applications.
