APR Tuned SK100004 Connecting Rods - EA113
Install Kit
For EA113 Rods

APR is pleased to present Light-Weight, High-Strength Forged Connecting Rods for the EA113 2.0T FSI engine!

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 equipments stress tolerances. In such cases, its highly recommended and in some cases necessary to upgrade additional engine components to cope with the increased load. APRs Connecting Rods raise the engines stress tolerance levels to provide years of continued reliable operation without compromise.

APRs proprietary connecting rods feature premium, certified USA-Made 4330 alloy, chosen for its lightweight and high-strength properties compared to 4340 or other inferior alloys 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 connecting rod is designed to handle power levels far beyond the original components ratings in order to ensure reliability with years of continued use. Increasing rod strength often comes at the expense of increased weight, which ultimately reduces engine efficiency. To generate a balance between strength and weight, APR tested and analyzed several designs in addition to using premium alloys, advanced forging techniques and multiple strengthening treatments. APRs Engineering Teams design requirements resulted in a tapered H-beam design, offering exceptional strength due to the H design and weight savings from tapering, a trait most commonly associated with an A design.

We call it Performance Without Compromise.

The wrist pin end of the rod features a wear resistant bushing material made from AMPCO 45 a high strength alloy with mechanical properties beyond that of commercial nickel-aluminum bronzes. Wear reduction is further enhanced via a pin lubrication access point at the top of the rod, feed by the engines oil squirters. For further weight reduction and drop in rod compatibility with OEM and APR pistons, the wrist pin end is tapered.

When modifying an engine for strength and longevity, quality is of the utmost importance. APRs Engineering teams have ensured each rod is created with absolute quality and control in mind each step of the way. Tolerances are kept to OEM specs and the rods are balanced to within +/- 1 gram. Furthermore the rods undergo rigorous tests to backup the entire manufacturing process. Rockwell testing provides a method for testing hardness while Magnaflux or Magnetic Particle Inspection, offers a method for detecting interruptions in the physical continuity of the casting. The result is a product you can trust.
