Elite Autosport IS F 625+ Connecting Rods

H-Beam Design
Double Ribbed Cap
Wrist Pin Oil Holes
Grooved Pin Bushing
ARP Fasteners

The BC625+ connecting rod is the premier connecting rod and will soon become the industry standard in terms of design, quality and features. The radial H beam design, the ARP Custom Age 625+ fasteners, the grooved pin bushing - this rod incorporates every trick we could throw at it. Good for 1000HP+. The bROD is the exact same rod - only with ARP2000 fasteners for a more economical alternative.

I have 7 sets available out of the first batch of 10!

Retail Price: $1599 + shipping
Sale Price: $1399 FREE shipping in USA

These rods are for those of you that want to make more power (600-700hp+) without worrying about stock rods failing. We are using these rods on the car I have in the shop now, I will weigh them later today!

The Weights are in!

Factory Rods..................... 655 Grams
Elite Forged Rods................ 536 Grams
Total Difference Per Rod...... 111 Grams
Total Rotating Mass Difference: 888 Grams or 1.957 Pounds!

I am really happy with this! I'm thinking that you may honestly free a few HP by switching to these on an NA car.... Hmmmm!

Why do you think the stock rods will cause problems above 600, has anyone reported them failing yet? And I get that not many people are pushing the car right now, but there are people on N20 and I haven't seen a post by them of an issue. N20 will quickly tell you the weak points even at lower power levels just due to its nature of delivery.

We do not know when the stock rods will fail...... I also don't think anyone wants to find out when they fail. They would know this when there is a hole in the side of their block. :) There is no doubt that these will handle whatever we can throw at them!

You make one part stronger and another weaker. I just thought it was a stretch to pick numbers like 600-700 without some type of data. There are guys close to 600 now with nitrous. And again IMO, pushing 500+ with nitrous is probably like 600+ with a turbo or 650-700 with a S/C due to delivery of the power.

My thoughts are is how bullet proof Toyota makes its motors. I have a hard time believing they didn't design this motor (still top of the line-up and most advanced motor until the LF-A is released) well below its true performance capabilities for the sake of longevity.

Good luck with your sales and I wish you luck as you seem to be breaking ground on parts for the ISF where few others are.

im very weary of Brian Crower parts....
I have used BC rods in many many cars. I am very confindent in them and I honestly have no worries. I have them in my 9 second 240sx and I also have built many other cars with them! If I didn't like them I would not have them in my own car.
