High Performance BMW Connecting Rods

Molnar Connecting Rods

Molnar Technologies H Beam BMW rods are machined from billet 4340 steel, and then heat treated to provide improved strength. To make the rods even stronger, they are shot peened to which also increases fatigue life. All Molnar BMW connecting rods are fitted with highly durable premium bronze bushings for use with floating pin type pistons. Each rod set for the BMW M52 M54 and S54 series engines includes ARP fasteners, lubricant and installation guidelines.

All Molnar M52 B32, M54 B30, and S54 B32 rods are finished in the United States at the Molnar Technologies shop in Michigan. Critical rod dimensions are are held to very precise tolerances of +/- .0001 of an inch, which is the tightest tolerance you will find in the performance and racing aftermarket.
