Thank you. You have rated this product.
The factory connecting rods in the MX5's 2.0L Skyactiv engine are TINY and sure to be the weakest link if you go for lots of power. These rods are designed to hold up to everything you want to throw at them. Rated for 400-500 hp, so you have plenty of headroom for your choice of boost from supercharger or turbo.
Features a tapered small end so they are compatible with the factory pistons. The Pauter rods weigh 508 grams each (with a variable of up to 10 grams per rod), compared to a stock rod at 485 grams. ARP rod bolts are included. Torque spec: 35 ft-lbs.
Brian's Application Notes: Nobody needs these.....yet. We have been running them in a built motor here putting as much as 300 ft/lbs torque to the ground through a built transmission. At some point some customers will need these and we got to work early on them and now with a year of beating the snot out of the motor with these we are revealing them on the site...but not currently offering them for sale. If you really want a set immediately, contact Ryan in our shop and we can make it happen if enough folks want us to get them on shelf.
