Owners of 2002-2012 Chevy/GM pickups equipped with the 6.6L Duramax engine, and those with 1989-2012 Dodge/Ram pickups with 5.9 or 6.7L Cummins engines, can rely on Boostline’s new diesel connecting rods to handle serious increases in power and boost. Forged from ultra-strong 4340 steel alloy, these rods feature Boostline’s patented 3-pocket design that provides a 60% improvement in bending strength and a 20% stress reduction compared to conventional H-beam designs. The rods are fitted with 12mm ARP2000 fasteners that are rated at 220,000 psi tensile strength, and the larger diameter contributes to a 23% greater clamping force than with 7/16” ARP2000 bolts. Extensively dyno-tested with sustained loads in excess of 2,000 lb. ft. torque, these new Boostline connecting rods are proven reliable in high boost applications.
