Tuscan connecting rods represent the leading edge of technology for bottom end strength, reliability, and lightweight.  Our Engineering staff utilizes the most modern technology to optimize these rods to a level never before seen at the enthusiast level.   Give your engine a reliably strong connecting rod set that is rated for engines up to 1000BHP!

IE's Tuscan connecting rod sets are the best rods available for your European engine due to quality, custom application specific design, and thorough testing.  Each Tuscan design is different from any other design because they are custom-crafted and optimized by our engineers using the latest CAD and FEA software.  This is in contrast to the industry standard which simply resizes standard designs to fit new engines.  Each application is vigorously tested in our in-house engine test cell.  We have gone the extra mile to design specific big ends for each application, keeping the bearing in place and reducing chances of failures.  This results in a connecting rod that is uniquely strong and light, for the ultimate in performance and reliability.

Each model is detailed out with a unique feature set that ensures proper operation within the unique demands of that engine.  There is a particular emphasis placed on providing a stable foundation for the connecting rod bearing.  By providing a stable platform for the rod bearing, much higher reliability is possible.  For that reason, the feature set is not consistent across all models of IE Tuscan rods.

This level of attention to detail is mirrored in the manufacturing details as well.  Each set of Tuscan connecting rods are honed in the USA to tolerances of around 250 millionths of an inch! This ensures amazing bearing reliability you really cannot find elsewhere in this price range.  These rods are as round and true as any rods money can buy.
