FBM 1000Hp Forged Connecting Rods

We've been working with a company here in the states to bring these rods to the market. I will release pricing soon, but they are 100% made in the US with top quality materials. They are rated to handle 1000hp easily.

We are not expecting to make that kind of power. We just like to over build things just for insurance.

Our shop FRS is still running strong on the stock motor but we are always looking for stronger and more reliable parts.

We will have 10 sets available by friday.

I'm guessing these would need to be worked in on a full rebuild? Are you guying planning on selling fully built blocks with core swaps?

The rods transmit the force from piston to crankshaft to allow the axial movement of the piston to be transformed into rotational movement to drive the flywheel. If you have too much power for the rods you have, you may bend or break one. It makes a gut wrenching mess, and the force of it can throw it entirely through the engine block. Better to pay for good rods rather than have to buy a new engine... And THEN buy the rods lol.

Great.. I'm interested in pricing on the built short blocks when it becomes available. Transmission and rear become the next pain points, I'm guessing. Any plans for those? Coming from an F-body years ago, the T56 tranny was strong but the 10-bolt 7.5" rear was not. I realize this is an FR-S, but I want to see how far this thing can be pushed. These days, I like cheaper import platforms that can be built out.

I see no reason why the factory rods can't handle 400whp for a good long time.

But these rods look great, and should be on anyone's list looking to make big power.

Has anything special been done to the mating surface of the cap to rod? Have they been tested yet? We are in the process of doing a overbore FA20 right now that's why I am asking.

Same mind set I have always had,....in process right now of going forged with Arias pistons (lower compression) and Pauter rods and race crank bearings for my turbo build.....curious what the tranny will take though.

I think you're missing the point of 1000HP capable rods.

We would have to weigh the stock ones to find out. We tried to keep it as light as possible without sacrificing strength. The total weight of the rod is 565g

Standard non-cracked application. According to FEA result, the side load was not a concern like most angled cap.

Do you have a weight and inertia difference between the two connecting rods? I would definitely be interested in these if the difference is minimal.
