If anyone are looking for far better conrods for an engine rebuild, restoration build or performance engine build project then these H-Beam conrods are for you. Rated at 850Nm, 45+ psi and 10,000rpm[/B][/B] these conrods are pure monsters. 6 sets are currently available and more will be produced in the future if there's interest. A full set will include the cap bolts, costing AUD$600.00 Best regards, Nigel

When has a C900 ever bent a rod before blowing the transmission?

Thank you for your reply. Yes, the stock rods are strong but I wanted something lighter and stronger what would handle more HP, torque, pressure and revs. I know the Mahle' and GM pistons are rubbish. Customs forged pistons can also be bought if you wish? Best regards, Nigel

The SAAB block is built like a tank! I'm aware the gearbox is the weakest link but I'm hoping that it will be a project in the future. The conrods produced are for those that are finding it harder to get there hands on c900 conrods or wanting a better engine build with the ability to add that extra power, or have done something with the gearbox already. It's the best of worlds really ?

Very nice. Can you weigh a unit with the fasteners? What type (brand) of fastener?
Kudos for supporting the Saab after market.

It's been estimated that 1 x conrod with fasteners will be around 586g. Sorry for the late reply and hope this helps. Regards, Nigel
