Got me some of these. With EDM hole.
1.8T I-Beam Forged FPO Rods with Forged Piston Set
Made from Cr. Mo.Ni.Steel (SAE 4340) forgings. Heat treated to ensure internal as well as external strength and to facilitate uniformity of strength throughout the entire rod. All rods come complete w/ ARP2000 Fasteners. Wrist pin oiling Rifle drilled.
Brute Connecting Rods utilize forced pin oiling to facilitate a more reliable bottom end. We have found that under normal operation, dry pin bushings that rely on oil squirters and windage require a rebush far sooner then is acceptable to us. Ensuring that the pins recieve adequate pressurized lubrication can more then double the life expectancy. Since rebushing a tapered rod is an extremely complicated process, the added peace of mind is a good thing.
WE DO NOT DRILL OUT STANDARD RODS. THESE RODS ARE MANUFACTURED TO ACCEPT DRILLING TO KEEP STRENGTH

No worries Omar, I want to see your car rip w/ the setup

Made of gold ? Why half a year wait
Looooooong story, so I won't divert this thread...
But I will say that Arnold has been the one of the most reliable and trustworthy vendor I've dealt with on the forums. These Brutes come with the edm standard, and as such, you won't have to wait for edm machining (which has been one of my issues for why it's taken so damn long to get a set of rods)
Of course Jake. Have them in stock
for PC & AL
These rods are INA Approved!
responded. All PM's replied. BTW, Brutes are manufactured w/ rifle drilling in mind. They are not standard rods pulled and drilled. Keep it together guys
19mm would be for the awp motor in h-beam config

They are rated at 500hp but I wouldnt hesitate to throw more at them. The beauty of the tapered rods is the forced pin oiling. The thin section up top is adequately lubed and cooled which keeps heat down and the bushing intact. Tapered rods are engineered to eliminate as much reciprocating weight as possible under revs to keep the engine quiet. Perhaps its one of the reasons why we can use high comp pistons under revs and dont make the knock sensors go crazy... Knowing this throughout the years and the nature of bushing replacement on tapered rods, why not make them as reliable as possible?
As for engine packages, just ask. I've been doing it for years.

I know, they are beautiful rods. I'll stack them up to Pauter any day.

Of course you do Val
Quote, originally posted by yumann » Are these shot peened?
Yes, they are heat treated and shot peened after the forging process
Quote, originally posted by 50trim S » are these made in china like the other company that makes rods that are compatible with 19mm pistons?
also are there only 2 companies that are made for the 19mm's?
No, these arent
Are brutes made in the USA? where are they made?
There are a handful of people on this forum keeping it real and are intelligent enough to build proper cars. Everyone else, keep wasting your money and time running around in circles following the herd.
Quote, originally posted by 20thAEGti1009 » what kind of power are the 20mm I Beam rods rated to? Im debating on replacing my eurospec rods with these.
Lets just say I would rate them up there w/ Pauter. I wouldnt hesitate using these on a very high hp project
Quote, originally posted by 20thAEGti1009 » thats awesome.. cause im really not to sure if trust the eurospec's up at 565whp
These are very beefy rods. Has everything that you might want to throw at it like the edms... in short, these things are fully load
