Carillo Rods and Pistons for Nissan GT-R

May 2, 2009 Comments off


Carillo manufacture serious rods and have joined with CP to develop rod and piston sets suitable for the Nissan GT-R. The CP pistons are a forged upgrade over the standard VR38’s cast items. The forged construction allows improved strength at a potential lower weight.

The Carillo connecting rods (conrods) are also forged in a H-beam configuration. The OE rods are forged too but are I-beam design. The H-beam rods are usually lighter than their I-beam counterparts while maintaining similar strength characteristics.

That’s pretty much all the info we have for now, if you’re interested in knowing more hit up Injected Performance at the link below.
