If you're building a 2.0L or 2.4L engine for your Neon / Neon SRT-4 / PT Cruiser and you're using OEM connecting rods, ARP Connecting Rod Bolts are a must. OEM rod bolts are torque to yield fasteners that are meant to be used only one time. Reusing these fasteners increases the chances of catastrophic engine failure if one lets go.

Brand new OEM connecting rod bolts cost about $40.00 after tax for the set from the dealership, so for an additional $29.99 for the set of ARPs you can have the additional strength and peace of mind knowing you have a quality rod bolt that can be resused time and time again if needed, potentially saving you money in the long run.

These bolts are made from ARP2000 alloy steel, forged in house at ARP.

Note: These rod bolts will only work on OEM 2.0L / 2.4L connecting rods. They will NOT work with Eagle Rods, Crower Rods, etc.

Please note: These rod bolts were originally designed by ARP a while back for a Ford four cylinder motor. So ARP labels them as a Ford rod bolt. They are the exact same spec as what we need for the Neon, SRT-4 and PT Cruiser and will work fine, so do not worry if you buy these and receive them labeled as Ford bolts.
