BBC CHEVY SCAT PRO-COMPETITION SERIES CONNECTING RODS 6.385" I-BEAM BUSHED, 7/16's 12 POINT CAP SCREWS. EXTREME DUTY. 700+HP RATED. 4340 ALLOY.

The ultimate I-beam rod that incorporates the strength and technology of the H-beam rod.

  • One rib cap design for added strength and bearing support
  • Polished/Shot Peened beams to eliminate stress risers
  • Profiled clearance for stroker applications
  • Special hollow dowels and huge 7/16'' cap screw bolts greatly increase strength and horsepower capabilities
  • The Scat Pro-Comp extreme duty I-beam rods should not be mistaken for ProComp rods. These rods are made exclusively by Scat, and have nothing to do with the ProComp company. The critical sizing and installation of the ARP 7/16's cap screws is performed on a Sunnen machine in the USA by Scat Industries. These rods are excellent for those wanting the extra security offered by a rod with 7/16 ARP cap screws.

    These rods weigh approximately 785 grams each.

    Take notice of the design of these rods. They are far superior to conventional style I-beam rods. We are now using this rod in all of our 427 and 434 engines. These engines are making up to 610 hp, and use a 4.00" stroke crank. We also use this rod in a longer length in our big block 540/555 engines, making approx. 700+hp.

    If you do a search on the Scat Pro-Comp rods, you will find a vast amount of info on many car forums. All of the info is 100% positive. These rods are run in engines that not only produce high horsepower levels, but also run at continuous RPM. Notice the general appearance in the pictures. These rods do look impressive. The style is reminiscent of a steel billet rod. They are clearanced for most stroker applications, but as a rule, do check for clearance before finalizing your build.

    The fact that these rods are incredibly strong and well designed, made it an easy decision to use them in all of our high horsepower street/strip engines. This is the perfect upgrade to your rotating assembly.

    When comparing our prices, be aware that Scat also offers a low cost I-beam rod and it is easy to confuse the two models. The regular Scat I beam rod is not comparable to the Scat Competition Series. For the slight difference in price, the Competition Series Scat I-beam is the way to go.

    We think the Competition I-beam rods would be bullet proof in just about any street or strip rod below 700 hp. The failure rate with these rods is nearly non-existent, especially in engines running below 7000 rpm.

    Note from our company president, Skip White:

    I really do like the design of this rod, and I've read every review on most every car forum out there. I hear nothing but praise for this very special rod. We do offer lower cost rods, but this is our best value all things considered. When I hammer down on an engine, there is one concern I have more than any other, and it's if the rod is going to pull apart, break, due to fatigue, or excessive stretching. I have personally spoke to the owner of Scat, and he has expressed great confidence in what these rods are capable of handling. They are running in engines that have seen many seasons of brutal racing, and you really never hear of a failure. If your going to run them in a street/strip car, then you may very well have a lifetime set of rods. Do remember when a rod breaks or pulls apart in the engine, there is a great chance you will loose your complete engine.
