Boostline Diesel Rods for Duramax & Cummins

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.

Owners of 2002-2012 Chevy/GM pickups equipped with the 6.6L Duramax engine, as well as those with 1989-2012 Dodge/Ram pickups with 5.9L or 6.7L Cummins engines, can turn to 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. of torque, these new Boostline connecting rods are proven reliable in high boost applications. Manufactured to exceptionally close tolerances, the rods are QC checked for consistency by means of a 25-point CMM inspection.

Boostline connecting rods are engineered specifically for turbocharged and extreme-duty engines. They are available for many popular import and domestic applications. Visit www.boostlineproducts.com or call 833-256-7600.
