The connecting rod is one of the most highly stressed components within the engine and uprated connecting rods are an essential upgrade for high power Focus RS engines, as advised when upgrading to MR420.
The mountune Forged Connecting Rod was developed using extensive FEA analysis resulting in the optimum connecting rod for applications up to 200 bhp per cylinder.
Exclusive features include a robust, H – Beam configuration with extensive machining to optimise weight without reducing strength. All edges and corners are radiused to improve durability.
Tool steel connecting rod bolts are also standard and are superior to most bolts found in other rods on the market.
Silicone/bronze pin bushings provide a durable and low friction surface that remains dimensionally stable in high pressure and high RPM applications.
For use with mountune Forged Pistons, and other pistons utilising standard dimension OE wrist pins.
Please note: Sold as a set of 5 connecting rods.
Had my MK2 RS forged by Mountune and again great product and great service from the whole team, very happy thanks Mountune
Recently i had my engine forged by mountune and whilst i don't see any difference but i can hear my engine is quieter and runs smoother than before... placebo effect i dont think so.
