VW 2.0 Connecting Rods

Molnar Technologies

Molnar Technologies H Beam VW 2.0 connecting 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 which also increases fatigue life. All Molnar 2.0 rods are fitted with highly durable premium bronze bushings for use with floating pin type pistons. Each rod set for the Volkswagen 2.0 engine includes ARP2000 series fasteners, lubricant and installation guidelines.

All Molnar VW conrods 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. These rods are an excellent upgrade component for street, high performance and racing VW engines.
