Weight. Strength. Balance. When it comes to rod selection, which is more important? Through advances in technology and automation, it is now possible to provide three kinds of connecting rods in one factory (Hurricane Speed and Performance), 4340 steel, Titanium and Aluminum.

As a connecting rod manufacturer, a flexible manufacturing process with fully CNC machine, professional team and experienced engineers, designers allows us to make variable quantities of connecting rods from prototype designs through to high volume production, from STD rods to Custom rods. If possible, we would like to give you an edge over your competitors.

Below is our main types of materials, please send us email to help you, marketing@hurricane-rod.com.cn


Conrods are made from 4340 steel as an aircraft grade alloy because of its superior strength and durability. Steel that meets Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) 4340 standards, elements as follows:
 Chemical Copposition(%)        
 SI  Mn  P  S Ni   Cr  Cu  Mo  V TI  Al 
0.4   0.28 0.72   0.014  0.009 0.01  1.17  0.75  0.009   0.22  0.01  0.01 0.009 

Besides these elements make our rods high performance. Most useful rods are 100% machined fully CNC machine in controlled temperature with best factory cost directly.

Our design team works closely with every customer needs using the latest CAD technology to come true design whether used sample for an OE application, simple drawing that customer made or custom made rods for full race applications.

In addition to custom batch manufacture, we also hold some STD rods in stock for many popular race engines, which can be provided for new customers when they need sample to test.

At present, an abundance of 4340 connection rods with steel bushing is available for all famous engine types or custom made can be done. All of our inventory are:
Acura & Honda Rods
Audi & VW Rods
Buick Rods
BMW Rods
Chevrolet Rods
Chrysler & Dodge Rods
Fiat Rods
Ford Rods
Harley Davidson Rods
Isuzu Rods
Mazda Rods
Mitsubishi Rods
Nissan Rods
Opel/Vauxhall Rods
Subaru Rods
Suzuki Rods
Toyota Rods

Among EN24 rods, Ultra high performance one-piece conrods retain its strength in Physics.Innovation in the heat treatments and materials go into one-piece of non-split rods.

Titanium rods are another option for racers who want an extra edge. Titanium is both lightweight and strong. A titanium rod feature:

1.Saving weight about 28 to 34%, lighter than a steel rod, and has approximately the same durability, comparable strength.

2.Titanium chemical composition (%):
 SI Mn  Cr  Ni  Mo 
 1.68 0.78  0.78  1.89   0.35 0.0080 

3.Balanced end to end within a gram

Titanium rods are a good choice for applications that need quick throttle response like sprint cars, road racers and also drag racers or high end racing categories.


Aluminum rods are another option for racers, which is popular in America, lightweight for racers. At present, aluminum rods are made from 7075Al, chemical components:
Si(%):0.40, Fe(%):0.50, Cu(%):1.2-2.0, Mn(%):0.30, Mg(%):2.1-2.9, Cr(%):0.18-0.28, Zn(%):5.1-6.1, Ti(%):0.2, Al(%):Margin
