HKS Forged Piston & Connecting Rod Kit VQ35DE: FREE SHIPPING
HKS Forged Piston & Connecting Rod Kit are now available for the Nissan VQ35DE engine. The combination of HKS Pistons, and Connecting Rods strengthens the VQ35DE engine substantially and allows the engine to increases revs to 7,200RPM. The HKS Piston & Connecting Rod Kit are engineered for forced induction applications and specifically designed for the factory crankshaft. The optional HKS VQ35DE Metal Head Gaskets are targeted for forced induction and high-horsepower naturally aspirated applications.
The HKS VQ35DE Pistons and Connecting Rods are forged from special alloys for strength and durability over their factory counterparts. The HKS Pistons lowers the compression ratio to 9.0, and the HKS Connecting Rods utilize an I-beam structure. The VQ35DE factory connecting rods have a tapered design which is a weak-point for high-horsepower applications. HKS Connecting Rods address this weakness by maintaining thickness from end to end. To prevent the need to perform balancing modifications to the factory crankshaft, HKS Pistons weigh the same as the factory pistons, and HKS Connecting Rods have the same weight distribution as the factory connecting rod.
