NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

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!
