 Description

Achieve your performance goals with IE H-beam connecting rods that will make your build a success. IE Rods are designed for strength and reliability to support performance builds up to 600 horsepower and torque. Engineered to be fairly light weight for a high power to weight ratio making them the perfect choice for aggressive street builds.

All IE connecting rods are designed on and per engine application basis for factors such as cylinder pressure and rotating assembly mass. Many other brands simply change dimensions and do not engineer for the specific application at hand. FEA and computer simulation software is used to ensure the highest quality product.

The two most important dimensions of a connecting rod are the tolerances and roundness of the crankshaft journals and wristpin bushings. IE Rods are machined in-house on our top-of-the line USA made Sunnen rod hone machine that ensures proper critical roundness. After machine work is finished, every rod set undergoes a strict quality control process to verify all tolerances, weight balance, bolt threads, and surface finishes.

Optional Rifle Drilling

Rifle drilling is a machining process that adds a small hole directly through the center of the connecting rod. This galley force-feeds oil pressure from the crankshaft journal through the rod to the wrist pin bushing. Providing extra lubrication greatly extends engine life and reduces wear on the wrist pin and wrist pin bushing. Rifle drilling upgrade is highly recommended for street cars that will be driven for extended miles.

Features:

  • Supports far more horsepower and torque than the stock components
  • Keeps your engine reliable for upgraded turbos and superchargers
  • Supports higher RPMs to squeeze out more top end power
  • Safeguards your engine to ensure a successful project
  • Supports up to 600 horsepower and torque (for higher power builds consider IE Tuscan I-beam Connecting Rods)

Integrated Engineering Forged Connecting Rods

VEHICLE FITMENT

This 144X20 connecting rod set will only work with factory-equipped pistons that use 20mm wrist pins and non-tapered rods. Many 1.8T 20V (06A) and 2.0T FSI (EA113) engines use a tapered rod, for these engines please see our drop-in rod options if you wish to keep factory pistons. Use the piston fitment guide in the technical specs tab to verify factory piston compatibility

    Applications:

    Integrated Engineering is striving to provide a wide range of connecting rods primarily for major European brands. These particular Rods fit the following engines, however they may fit more with custom pistons or other pieces. 

    • VW / Audi 1.8t Engines w/ 20mm Wrist Pin Pistons
    • VW / Audi 2.0 FSI Turbo Engines w/ Custom Pistons
    • Audi 5 cylinder engines w/ 20mm Wrist Pin Pistons
    • VW Mk2 8v's using 144 MM length rods
    • VW / Audi 16v Engines

    These require trimming the oil pump drive gear on 058 engines for clearance. 

    Refer to the guide below to verify piston compatibility by engine code.
