Carrillo Connecting rods were founded by Fred Carrillo in 1963. Fred approached the challenges of manufacturing with the idea of no compromise. He knew the never ending quest for speed would require the same desire in component manufacturing. This Carrillo philosophy is as evident today as it was at Carrillo's conception in 1963.
Quality and pride go hand-in-hand at CP-Carrillo. Manufacturing a CP-Carrillo rod is much more than cutting a forging, meeting production goals and shipping deadlines. The design of connecting rods has evolved into a collaboration of skilled specialists. Every connecting rod is a symphony of precision: material specialist, forging precision, production craftsman, design engineers and engine specialists each contribute know-how and artistry.
CP-Carrillo connecting rods are fully machined from a proprietary 4330m alloy forging for strength and durability and are available with 2 types of bolts: The standard WMC-H7 (H11) bolt with a UTS of 220ksi and our upgraded CARR-S7 (MP35N) bolt with a UTS of 285ksi. The CARR upgraded bolt is a good choice if planning on revving the engine higher than 6000rpm. All our bolts are manufactured with Asymmetrical threads, each thread has a slightly different design than the previous giving the bolts an evenly distributed thread engagement. This helps increasing the clamp load and fatigue life of the fastener. Includes Mahle steel bushing for added durability and optional Cap Relief is available to aid in oil evacuation for those that run higher loads and RPM's lock up bearings.
