We are excited to announce our 144×23 rifle drilled drop-in connecting rods for VW MK5, MK6, MK7/MK7.5 & Audi B8, C7, 8P, 8J, 8V, 8S designed to work with aftermarket pistons. Our connecting rods have been strengthened to accommodate for larger turbos and boost while maintaining reliability.
Rifle drilling will increase the longevity of the pin by allowing extra lubrication.
The I-Beam design handles high compressive loads while also providing excellent torsional stiffness.
Honing & CMM
Every connecting rod is measured on our in house CMM (coordinate measuring machine) and honed to ensure our connecting rod tolerances are set correctly.
All CTS Turbo connecting rods use ARP 2000 rod bolts
