Nissan SR20DET connecting rod weight matching service

This is another service we offer here at Pavel’s Racing Engines. We can weight match, aka balance, your engine’s connecting rods and install ARP rod bolt. As a sample of our work we have a set of Nissan SR20DET connecting rods. We can provide this service for any set of connecting rods; motorcycle, automotive, truck, industrial, import, domestic, marine, we can do it all. We have precision scales to weight match every connecting rod to within 0.5 grams of each other. We weight match the small and big end of the rod. We identify each bolt and provide rod bolt log sheet with every connecting rod order. This way you can monitor rod bolt stretch and replace worn bolts before catastrophic engine failure occurs. All connecting rod bolts replaced with appropriate application kit for one of the best hardware manufacturers in the world, Automotive RAcing Products (ARP).


We performed the following services on the connecting rod:

  • -Check for bend and twist, and correct if necessary
  • -Check piston pin bushing
  • -Weight match small and big ends of connecting rods
  • -Install ARP connecting rod bolts
  • -Engrave each bolt for identification, measure it’s free length, and record in the “Rod Bolt Log Sheet”
  • -Compare “torque” vs “stretch” methods for bolt validation
  • -All bolts torque using ARP Ultra-Torque Moly Lubricant
