Sport compact BoostLine rods are now available with an ARP’s Custom Age 625-Plus rod bolt upgrade. Learn about the differences in rod bolt technology.
Upgrades. They seem to be a pervasive part of 21st Century life. While flying in First Class is certainly nice, it’s a trade off of personal comfort against a somewhat stiffer fare. There are also upgrades for connecting rods but instead of wine with cheese you get that added insurance of a better connecting rod bolt that that offers added peace of mind for that spinning big-block at full song. When you consider the consequences of an expired engine, the tradeoff is well worth the expense.

With the release of the Coyote, Ford perfected the modular engine platform. Available for the past seven years, enthusiasts have done virtually everything there is to do with the powerplant. It has run 6s in the quarter-mile, won numerous road racing championships, and piloted drifters to podium finishes.

We reveal the technology behind our brand new 3 pocket BoostLine connecting rod design and how it's able to support 2,000hp+
The lineage of drag race engines – or any race engine for that matter – is written within eyeshot of that shelf of broken parts. This is an ancestry of a learning curve. As power increases, the stress on internal engine components also increases. As piston designs improve to take the abuse of immense cylinder pressures of especially turbocharged race engines, that load is passed right on to the connecting rod.
Keeping Things Straight
It’s clear there was a need for a stronger connecting rod for these high output turbocharged, supercharged and nitrous-assisted engines. Good connecting rods were literally bending under the incredible cylinder pressure loads of 2,000 hp small-block and big-block engines as well as their four cylinder cousins. This has renewed the connecting rod controversy of H-beam versus I-beam.
Both sides have their proponents; we won’t review it all here. We’ll just leave it at the H-beam is typically lighter while the I-beam is generally acknowledged as stronger. Weight plays a big part in the overall consideration with regard to how well the rod can handle what engineers call ‘tensile loading’. Smart engine builders know that while boosted engines can bend a connecting rod with compressive loads, engine speed also plays a big role.
