1.8T Rod Bearings with tangs
Our Price: $60.00
Sale Price: $40.00
You save $20.00!

These rod bearings fit 4cyl vws and are the factory rod bearing from 1999-2000 AWD engine 1.8T

These rod bearings fit aftermarket rods from companies like IE, Scat, Pauter, Eagle, Etc.

If your aftermarket rods have locks in the rods or "tangs" these are the correct bearings for your application.

These rod bearings are recommended for engines producing <400whp.

If you are going to be producing more than 400whp please purchase our coated extra clearance .001+ HX calico rod bearings.
Calico 4cly VW rod bearings
Our Price: $90.00
Sale Price: $83.00
You save $7.00!

These rod bearings are recommended for built motor 4cly vw engines that are making in excess of 400whp and revving over 8000rpm.

We have actual data where factory rod bearings under high power and rpm failed.

These bearings have been used in many of our high whp street and race cars without fail.

These bearings are coated with calicos anti friction coating and are an HX beaing, harder and extra clearance (.001+) over a factory rod bearing.

Fluidampr Crank pulley 1.8t
Our Price: $450.00

Fluidampr Engine Dampers are designed to control destructive vibrations
which are transfered thru the crankshaft.

Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the
combustion that occurs creates a torque spike that is applied to the
crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe
that it not only turns the crankshaft, it actually twists the crankshaft
ahead of its normal rotation and then the crankshaft rebounds. This
twisting action is known as torsional vibration. When these torque
spikes and forces get into phase with the natural frequency, critical
torsional harmonic vibrations occur and can be seriously destructive to
the bearings and the crankshaft. Dampers are designed to control those
destructive vibrations.


Critical harmonic vibrations occur numerous times in a engine’s
operating range. Stock rubber and elastomer-type dampers are frequency
sensitive “tuned absorbers”, and work at only one critical frequency. In
the case of a stock rubber damper, it is tuned for a factory engine’s
critical harmonic vibrations. If you change the mass of pistons, rods,
or the crankshaft, you change the natural frequency of the crankshaft
assembly; therefore, the stock damper is no longer tuned to the new
frequency of vibration, and you may be headed for early failure of
expensive engine components. Dampers also create heat while they work,
and rubber is a poor dissipator of heat. This heat and the exposure to
the elements deteriorates rubber, causing it to crack and change
durometer, which then leads to inertia ring slippage, damper failure,
uncontrolled torsional vibration, and costly engine parts breakage.

Integrated Engineering 19mm Rods for 1.8T
Our Price: $449.99
Sale Price: $429.99
You save $20.00!

These Integrated Engineering aftermarket rods are the best bang for your buck when building your engine! These are the late model Audi/VW rod of choice for 99.9% of engine builds where stock pistons are retained.

These rods coupled with stock pistons have been installed on hundreds of cars with great success. We have installed dozens of these rods on in house vehicles without a single hick-up.

Factory 19mm rods will fatigue and break over time at 330+whp where these replacement rods will withstand power levels much higher than that. Although no limit has been reached we would assume they should be good for ~600whp+ for extended use without failure.

Put these in your 300+whp build and have piece of mind without breaking the bank!
Integrated Engineering 2.0T FSI Rods

These Integrated Engineering aftermarket rods are the best bang for your buck when building your engine! These are the late model Audi/VW rod of choice for 99.9% of engine builds where stock pistons are retained.

These rods coupled with stock pistons have been installed on hundreds of cars with great success. We have installed dozens of these rods on in house vehicles without a single hick-up.

Factory FSI rods will fatigue and break over time at 350+whp where these replacement rods will withstand power levels much higher than that. Although no limit has been reached we would assume they should be good for ~600whp+ for extended use without failure.

Put these in your 350+whp build and have piece of mind without breaking the bank!

These rods are specific for the 2.0t FSI and are not to be used in other applications other than that, if you are looking for a rod for aftermarket pistons go with the standard 1.8t 20mm rod as they will work with 2.0t FSI pistons with 20mm wrist pins.

Pauter 1.8T 20mm rods
Our Price: $849.00
Sale Price: $819.00
You save $30.00!

Pauter rods are the ultimate rod for imports and domestics.

We have run these in the shop car for 5 years, same set ranging from 500whp-800+whp for years with 0 issues. These rods are a completely different design than other Scat/Eagle etc. They are X beam rather than H beam and are very very strong.

You may pay more for these rods but they are worth every penny if you are building a setup for huge power.

These rods are 144mm in length and 20mm wrist pin diameter, these fit all 4cly vw engines with the same measurements.
