ARP PART # 208-6401

These ARP High Performance series connecting rod bolts are made from seamless and defect-free 8740 chromoly steel. All ARP rod bolts are heat-treated before grinding and thread rolling and have a large underhead radius for greater strength. Guaranteed to pass magnetic inspection testing, these bolts are nearly five times stronger than OEM bolts. They're used in applications ranging from stock replacement to Circle Track, marine, and drag racing engines.

ARP manufactures replacement rod bolts for many popular import and domestic Sport Compact engines that are made of premium grade 8740 chromoly steel and heat treated to a nominal tensile strength of 200,000 psi. Threads are rolled after heat treat to ensure optimum fatigue strength. They are far superior to OEM fasteners in terms of durability and service life and are fully capable of handling the extra stress of high combustion pressure engines. For extreme applications, rod bolts made of special ARP2000 material (rated at a 220,000 psi nominal tensile strength) are available, including those with the patented Wave-Loc design.

**Note:These Bolts are designed for use with OEM Connecting Rods.
