Here is your chance to upgrade your skinny rods in your current 2uzfe or 3uzfe engine. Your 4.3 liter or 4.7 liter rods are a ticking bomb if you decide to put some boost into it. I have seen many Tundra or Sequoia engines blow up because of the weak pistons and rods. This is the reason why TRD stopped making those supercharger kit for the 4.7 Liter. These rods are custom made as order specifically for the Lexus SC400/430, LS400/430, GS400/430 and the Toyota V8 engine (2UZFE) like the Tundra, Sequoia and the 4Runner. These rods are direct fit to your stock pistons or custom forged pistons. A complete set of rods for $1490.00. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.
Pauter Rods has years of hands-on experience working with rods of all shapes and materials. Through different types of racing-related abuse, and the resulting design successes (and failures), PAUTER has acquired a fairly comprehensive file on just what works – and what doesn’t – on the subject of high performance connecting rods. From this body of knowledge they’ve selected and incorporated elements into what they think a great rod should be.
For starters, the simple beam design completely eliminates thin and non-uniform cross sections over the total length of the beam. This feature greatly improves resistance to crack-induced metal fatigue. In addition, the non-tapered profile of the beam helps to spread potentially harmful stress over a larger area, dispersing instead of concentrating these destructive loads. The design also efficiently places needed material in critical transitional areas, giving maximum support exactly where it is needed (such as directly under the wrist pin). The streamlined contour also provides subtle benefits in the form of windage reduction and breather/vacuum system function. The main beam rib continues around the wrist pin boss, perfectly integrating beam to boss, affording a small but important contribution to overall structural unity.
PAUTER RODS features:
• E4340 vacuum melt chrome moly forging, heat-treated to Rockwell C36

• Pauter 220,000 psi tensile strength MSP220 steel, J-formed, rolled thread racing rod bolts
• Aluminum-bronze wrist pin bushings
• EDM pressure-fed oiling to pin (available at extra cost.)
• Custom pin diameters and center-to-center rod lengths
• End-to-end balanced in sets.
