Audi / VW 1.8L Turbo 20v (180PS) I-Beam Connecting rods are manufactured from 4340 high tensile steel, they are designed for high performance, extreme durability and extra rigidity. These rods have a Tapered Pin End, so they are compatible with OEM pistons. The bushings made from AMPCO 18 material for excellent resistance to wear and fatigue and have radial groove for oil reservoir. They are shot peened to relieve stress from the material and multi-stage heat treated to increase rigidity.
