HKS H-Beam Connecting Rod Set - RB26 $3,800.00


The HKS H-Beam Connecting Rod Set is a performance-oriented upgrade designed to reinforce your Nissan RB26DETT engine. Built to handle the increased stress of high-horsepower applications, these connecting rods are a crucial component for any RB26 engine build pushing beyond stock limitations.

H-Beam Design for Strength and Weight Reduction

The H-beam design replaces the factory’s I-beam connecting rods. H-beams feature a wider, H-shaped cross-section throughout the center of the rod. This design disperses stress more evenly and strengthens the rod against bending and flexing compared to the stock I-beam design. Additionally, the H-beam design allows for reduced weight in the non-critical areas of the rod, minimizing reciprocating mass for improved engine response and acceleration.

Key Features of the HKS connecting rod set:

  • Precision Forged Construction: Manufactured from forged steel for superior strength and durability.
  • H-Beam Design: Enhances strength and reduces weight compared to stock I-beam rods.
  • Improved Strength: Designed to handle the increased loads of high-performance applications.
  • Stock-Sized Big and Small Ends: Ensures compatibility with your existing RB26DETT engine components.
  • Multiple Fitments: Compatible with Nissan Skyline GT-R models (BNR32, BNR33, BNR34) equipped with the RB26DETT engine.

Investing in Performance and Reliability

Upgrading your connecting rods is an essential step when modifying your RB26 engine for increased power. The HKS Step 2 H-Beam Connecting Rods offer a balance of strength, weight savings, and reliability, making them a popular choice for serious performance enthusiasts. Whether you’re building a dedicated track car or a high-powered street machine, these connecting rods provide the necessary foundation to handle the additional punishment without sacrificing reliability.

Note: When installing aftermarket connecting rods, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified engine builder to ensure proper installation and clearances.
