The 5150 AutoSport Pro-Xtreme Connecting Rods, manufactured by CP-Carrillo, are designed to handle extreme horsepower and high RPM applications for BMW N63/S63 Engines. Constructed from high-strength, aircraft-grade steel, these connecting rods are engineered to withstand the forces generated by high-powered engines. Unique to 5150, these rods were also designed with tapered small end to ensure compatibility with factory OEM pistons.
Tapered Rods are compatible with factory pistons while Non-Tapered Rods required aftermarket pistons. Please contact our sales department with any questions to verify compatibility.
The Pro-Xtreme design is specifically tailored to handle up to 2000 horsepower, making them suitable for high-performance turbo/drag racing or street/strip applications. They are also designed to handle high engine speeds of up to 9500 RPM, which is necessary for achieving maximum power output.
Each connecting rod is precisely engineered to meet the demands of high-performance engines using advanced manufacturing techniques such as computer-aided design (CAD) and finite element analysis (FEA). The Pro-Xtreme Connecting Rods are designed to be durable, reliable, and capable of handling the extreme stresses and forces generated by high-horsepower and high-rpm engines.
