Attention Engine Builders—Scat connecting rods are now approved for contingency use in the 2013 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge!
Of all the parts in a high performance engine, the vital link between the crankshaft and piston can make the difference between life and death. Of course what we are referring to here is the connecting rod. Rods are subject to tremendous loads power and rpm rise, and any failure virtually guarantees catastrophic engine destruction. Years ago engine builders tried their best to make the most of factory stock connecting rods, lovingly polishing and radiusing the beams, adding better bolts, and meticulously machining the critical dimensions. Even with all that love, rod failure was a regular occurrence, and a real limitation on reliable power output. These days, aftermarket companies like SCAT supply affordable connecting rods that take power and reliability to levels impossible with old factory rods.
SCAT rods are certainly not a one-size fits-all product, with a wide range of journal and pin dimensions and overall rod length available right out of the catalog. There are a variety of H-beam and I-beam rod configurations designed to meet the needs of your specific application, from upgraded stock replacement to all-out racing. For over 40 years SCAT has been manufacturing and distributing parts for the performance aftermarket, building success on innovation, quality, and customer service.
SCAT has used its 45 years of innovation and creativity to develop a broad line of connecting rods that are superior in strength, quality and reliability, at a price that represent a real value. High quality and durability is why Scat is the choice for many AMSOIL Engine Masters builders.
