Compstar Introduces A Ford 302 Connecting Rod

Produced from the same heat treated and stress relieved 4340 steel as existing Compstar H beam rods, every detail of this highly stressed component has been carefully analyzed to maximize repeatability and dependability.  Compstar is currently offering the new 302 rod in a 5.400 length with a true 2.123 rod diameter and 1.685 width.  For added strength and improved piston availability, Compstar 302 rods feature a .927 wrist pin bore.   ARP 2000 bolts are also standard equipment.  For more information on this new product contact our experienced technical department for guidance on your next Ford 302 build.
