Proudly introducing our SpeedFactory Racing D16 Vitara Spec No-Notch Long Connecting Rods!
Vitara piston turbo D16 builds are one of the most popular 300-500hp street Honda setups out there. Very cost effective, fun, and relatively simple to build. One thing that has always been frustrating with these builds is having to use standard length off-the shelf rods that are low compression, unnecessarily large and heavy, and require the usual block and girdle notching to use. Custom longer rods were then introduced that fixed the deck height/low compression issue, but you still had to deal with the tedious and time consuming task of block and girdle notching. Time to kiss those days goodbye!
Introducing the ultimate rod for these setups – lightweight, strong, and clears both the sleeves & girdle for unrivaled ease of use.
Optimized specifically for Vitara D16 builds they offer high strength and quality at an affordable price. The custom rod length brings the Vitara pistons up to proper deck height which gives higher compression, increased efficiency, and better response while being substantially lighter than other similar rods on the market.
The 2-piece forged 4340 chromoly construction provides outstanding strength and quality. Each rod is heat-treated, magnafluxed, CNC machined, and shot-peened to stress-relieve the metal. The rods have precision alignment dowels to positively locate the rod cap, maintain big end bore size, and eliminate cap walk. They feature bronze alloy pin bushings for floating wrist pins and come standard with 220,000 psi rated 3/8” ARP2000 rod bolts. Instructions and ARP Lube are included.
