    • Introducing Wiseco Boostline 2000+ hp capable Connecting Rods with 3-pocket design offering 60% strength increase over H-Beam design

      Wiseco has a Boostline product line of connecting rods which are said to be much, much stronger than traditional designs. What makes these rods different? They have a 3-pocket design that is said to be 60% stronger than traditional H-Beam rod designs.

      Boostline claims these rods are specifically for high power nitrous and forced induction applications:

      • 60% increase in bending strength vs. H-Beam
      • Patent Pending high strength 3-pocket design
      • Machined from premium 4340 forged steel
      • High quality ARP Bolts included
      • Inspected and finished in the USA (Mentor, Ohio)

      As for those applications, here are their current supported motors:


      It is interesting they have VW 1.8 and BMW S54 applications but nothing for newer boosted motors from VW/Audi and BMW. It would make more sense to support the newer turbocharged applications vying for big power but those likely will come with time.

        How much do they weigh compared to a more traditional I beam rod? Or the pauter X beam?

        That's a good question and something I didn't see covered in their specs.
