MAPerformance Ultimate Duty Billet Steel Rods (DSM 6 Bolt with 22mm Wrist Pins)
What Is Ultimate Duty?
Research & Development
The research phase for these connecting rods consisted of a process called Finite Element Analysis which helped us to determine the weakest points of the factory connecting rod design. Using that information we developed a prototype using state-of-the-art CNC equipment that included the finest high nickel AQ4340 billet steel material, Ampco 18 bronze wristpin bushings, Manton alignment sleeves, and massive 7/16" ARP 2000 series fasteners (torqued to 70 ft lbs using the supplied lubricant). In the final development phase the prototype was heat treated, fully stress relieved, and shot peened to ensure that no stress risers or surface imperfections remain. The end result: A 652 gram connecting rod that we feel is the strongest and most reliable steel connecting rod available on the market for this application.

- DSM 6 Bolt/1st Gen Connecting Rods Utilize the Larger 22mm Wrist Pin for Greater Strength and Maximum Piston Choice
Optionally we can apply an oil shedding thermal dispersant coating to your rods. This coating will speed up heat transfer from the rod to the oil then shed it quickly to allow fresh, cooler oil to come into contact with the rod. This will improve heat related stress issues associated with high performance, high revving, motors. A 'must have' for those wanting the highest confidence in their builds.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DSM 6 Bolt/1st gen connecting rods utilize the larger 22mm wrist pin for greater strength and maximum piston choice.
