hello, dear friend, it is about 440g per piece.

the products are unbranded, but it is with quality warranty.

our products have been exported to USA , UK, France, Germany
and many other countries,
of course also Netherlands
all of our customers like our quality.


our products could support 800 to 1000 horse power (hp) if you use strong bolts for them.
all of our products are with quality warranty.

132.79mm are using 3/8" bolts size bore, it is about 520g, but it is more stronger than 5/16" bolts sizes connecting rods

right now,
133mm with 5/16" bolts bore ones is not in stock,
but 132.79mm with 3/8" bolts bore are in stock.
I know i should not save on connecting rods, but i strongly believe these are the same as the ones sold everywhere else but with a name on it. There only 200 dollars with free shipping instead of the 500-600 dollar ones

Those are the same chinese rods that most of us are running, the one reason his are slightly cheaper is because they do not come with the ARP2000 rod bolts. I bet after you purchase those, then the ARP bolts, your total cost will be about the same as all the other ebay vendors who sell with the ARP bolts already.

Well overhere in europe they are very expensive, same as every car part.

Cheapest i could find was 400,- euro with arp. And a brand i never heard of. Thats around 600 dollar i guess

Eagle or k1 are around 600,- euro.

These chinese are 150,- and arp are around 100,-

Yes but due to high shipping cost and high import cost its more cost effective to import from china

Shipping from ebay(us particular) ranges between 60-100 dollars excl import charges

Import charges are over the total price incl shipping
