APR Connecting Rod

APR and Alex’s Autohaus are pleased to present light-weight, high-strength forged connecting rods and proprietary light-weight, high-strength forged OEM profile MAHLE pistons for 2.5 TFSI engines.

As the leader in high performance engine products for the Volkswagen Automotive Group, APR is capable of creating horsepower and torque levels outside of the original equipment’s stress tolerances.  In such cases, it’s highly recommended and in some cases necessary to upgrade additional engine components to cope with the increased load.  APR”s connecting rods raise the engine’s stress tolerance levels to provide years of continued reliable operation without compromise.

APR’s proprietary connecting rods feature premium, certified USA-Made 4330 alloy chosen for its lightweight and high-strength properties compared to 4340 or other inferior allows sourced from undisclosed locations around the world.  To ensure the highest level of quality control, the entire process from initial design to finished product, including materials, forging, treating and 100% CNC machining all take place in the USA.  APR only uses strict manufacturing guidelines in some of the finest manufacturing facilities in the industry to deliver unmatched quality and integrity with each rod produced.

The introduction of direct injection played a significant role in piston combustion bowl design.  The profile ultimately affects the swirl and tumble of the air/fuel mixture making the design critical for the most efficient use of the fuel.  APR worked with MAHLE, a VAG Tier 1 supplier for OEM pistons, to design a proprietary piston sharing the OEM profile, as found in VAG’s higher performance 2.5 TFSI engines, along with other strength and weight saving properties.

If you are looking to make some serious improvements to your 2.5 TFSI power plant give us a call at Alex’s Autohaus and we can create a plan for you to match your budget and performance goals.
