Manley Turbo Tuff Tri-Beam Rods

They are now available for over 30 engine types, including Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault, Subaru, and Toyota applications.

Manley Performance has expanded the availability of its Turbo Tuff tri-beam forged-steel connecting rods for highly boosted or nitrous Sport Compact applications.

The exclusive “Tri-Beam” configuration is a hybrid incorporating both I-beam and H-beam features. They are now available for over 30 engine types, including Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault, Subaru, and Toyota applications.

Based on forgings of 4340 aircraft quality vacuum degassed steel or 300M alloy, the I-beam is undercut so it has ribs that resemble a shallow “H.” The ribs continue around the pin end to reinforce it and maintain pin bore roundness. Similarly, the caps are ribbed to reinforce the big end and ensure housing roundness.

Other attributes include large radius cap corners with a shallow bolt spot-face to improve fatigue strength and pin holes at the 10:00 and 2:00 position on the small end to improve wrist pin lubrication. They are shot-peened to MIL spec and magnafluxed, then equipped with special high strength ARP rod bolts; either the 220,000 psi rated ARP2000 models or 260,000 psi Custom Age 625+ bolts.

Tri-Beam rods are conservatively rated at 1,000 flywheel HP (4340) or 1,400 HP (300M) for 4-cylinder engines and increase for additional cylinders. For more info: 732-905-3366 or www.ManleyPerformance.com.

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
