Manufacturer's Part Number: IERTV14426
Integrated's Tuscan connecting rods represent the leading edge of technology for bottom end strength, reliability, and light weight. Our Engineering staff uses the most modern computer design technology, including dynamic FEA simulations to optimize these rods to a level never before seen at the enthusiast level.
IE Tuscan rods for turbocharged applications feature a robust I-Beam design for incredible bending and torsional stiffness. Additionally, an extensive iterative process lead to the unique Egg shape of our rod beams, which lowers stresses as much as 20% compared to less evolved designs. This shape very evenly distributes the high compressive loading from a turbocharged engine onto the connecting rod beam. We then validated this success with over 18 months of field testing, powering numerous 4 cylinder VW / Audi engines with over 1000 bhp!
In addition to being tough, IE Tuscan rods are also designed to minimize unnecessary weight on the connecting rod. Our engineering staff has spent countless hours trimming the fat- leaving exactly what is needed to get the reliability you want, with the weight you don't.
Each set of Tuscan connecting rods are honed in the USA to tolerances of around 250 millionths of an inch! This ensures amazing bearing reliability you really cannot find elsewhere in this price range. These rods are as round and true as any rods money can buy.
Fits all 1.9L TDIs through 2003 with OE pistons. Sold only in sets of 4
