 Product Description


When upgrading connecting rods, it’s necessary to replace the existing connecting rod bearings. APR recommends using
Mahle Motorsport VP2 rod bearings for their superior strength and wear resistance properties and attention to detail over
the similarly priced OEM bearings.

Each bearing is capable of taking abuse in the magnitude of 14,500 psi while still offering superior conformability and fatigue
resistance not commonly seen elsewhere in the market. This is partially due to the bearing’s high-grade hardened steel
backing with bronze substrate and lead/indium overlay. Laser etched part numbers rather than typical stampings aid in
significantly improved heat transfer and prevention of shell distortion. Formula 1 standards dictate extremely high tolerances,
while Mahle’s attention to detail and chose of fine materials ensure worry free operation.

Set contains 4 pairs of bearings, one for each rod.
