ARP Rod Bolts

Unquestionably the most important fasteners in any
engine are the connecting rod bolts, as they hold the key
to the entire rotating assembly!


ARP manufactures replacement rod bolts for most popular Import engines made of premium grade 8740 chrome moly steel and heat treated to a nominal tensile strength of 190,000 psi. They are far superior to OEM fasteners in terms of durability and service life - fully capable of handling the extra stress of high combustion pressure engines. For extreme apps, rod bolts made of special ARP 2000 material with an awesome 220,000 psi nominal tensile strength are available, including those with the patented Wave-Loc design.

Choose from the following:
GOOD:  STD HIGH-PERFORMANCE (Hi-Perf) BOLTS
A premium grade 8740 alloy chrome moly steel is used to manufacture ARP High Performance connecting rod bolts. This material is heat-treated to provide a tensile strength in the 200,000 psi range, which is substantially stronger than the OEM bolts. Cycle testing shows ARP High Performance rod bolts to be nearly five times more reliable than stock bolts.

BETTER: WAVE-LOC® HIGH PERFORMANCE BOLTS
The same heat-treated 8740 chrome moly steel is used to make these rod bolts as ARP’s standard High Performance rod bolts. The big difference is in the shank design, with ARP’s exclusive (and patented) Wave-Loc technology providing substantial benefits. Because there are fairly wide tolerances in factory bolt holes, the bolt must be able to fit snugly and a knurl is applied. Unfortunately, these knurls cut deep into the bolt material, leaving
sharp edges and enormous “stress risers” that promote failure. That’s why ARP developed the Wave-Loc design that features symmetrical waves and has an effective interference range of .0005˝ to .007˝ for proper cap alignment.

BEST: “PRO” SERIES WAVE-LOC BOLTS
For the most severe applications, in conjunction with aftermarket I-beam rods, ARP has developed the “Pro” Series Wave-Loc bolts. These ultra heavy-duty rod bolts are made from a special material designated ARP2000. It has approximately 200% the fatigue life of 8740 chrome moly steel and has a tensile strength of about 220,000 psi, and is capable of more than 12,000 lbs. clamping force.
