NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. We are now only fulfilling order requests for items that are able to be acquired within 3 weeks IF we are able to get them. Longer than 3 weeks backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled, and will be fulfilled in the longer, as-advertised timeframe.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you select the "3 week backorder fulfillment option", you can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently our response time to emails is slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even when we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

SCAT 4340 5.500" H-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, 3/8" ARP 2000 Bolts, Balanced, Set of 4, 102512-3
SCAT 4340 5.500" H-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, 3/8" ARP 2000 Bolts, Balanced, Set of 4, 102512-3


 
SCAT 4340 5.500" H-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, 3/8" ARP 2000 Bolts, Balanced, Set of 4, 102512-3 are the finest non-Carrillo Connecting Rods available for your VW Engine. The strength and quality of these rods are an incredible value!
The 5.500" length is the perfect size for 78mm stroke cranks and "B" pistons, playing the piston where you don't have to do a ton of work to get the deck height correct! SCAT Connecting rods are the finest ones available in the VW Industry. It is true you can get a "nicer" rod with a Titanium Rod, or a Genuine Carrillo, but for VW specific applications, the SCAT is the best, for only $50 more than "lesser" rod choices.
The 3/8" ARP 2000 Rod Bolt is VERY strong, the strongest rod bolt that is available for our Aircooled VW Engines.
SCAT Connecting Rods are some of the finest available. The rod cap is precision dowel-pinned for alignment that will not change after disassembly. The rod cap and bearing will ALWAYS line up 100% like it did for the rod honing operation at the machine shop!
These rods are finish machined, and balanced, at the SCAT facility in California, USA! All SCAT Connecting rods feature:
Computerized machining processes which hold aerospace tolerance (EXTREMELY TIGHT!)
Center to center length +- .001"
Big and little end taper and bore sizes held to +- .0002"
Balanced overall and end for end in matched sets of 4, to +-1g.
SCAT 4340 high nickel and chrome content metalurgy ensures the highest tensile strength and fatigue strength from the multi-step heat treating process.
All SCAT rods are shot peened.
All SCAT rods are X-rayed, Sonic Tested, and Magnafluxed too!
We genuinely feel the SCAT rods are the best you can get. While other rods might be less $, if you absolutely cannot have a rod failure, getting a set of SCAT connecting rods is a must!
