Oliver Rods are Better By Design™

Oliver I-beam connecting rods feature our exclusive “Parabolic Beam®” design that reduces beam stress and delivers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any connecting rod currently made.

Our Standard Light rods have been designed for the heart of the racing engine category.  These rods represent the perfect balance between weight and strength.  In applications where weight is the primary concern we offer our Ultra Light series.  For those of you pushing beyond the limits where weight takes a back seat to absolute strength, our Speedway and Max series rods are the only answer.

All Oliver rods are precision-machined using only premium mill-certified aircraft quality E4340 chrome moly alloy, heat-treated to produce a 100% martensite grain structure.


The Meaning of "MADE IN AMERICA”

Oliver connecting rods are made in America, from 100% American materials by the finest craftsmen in the world: Americans.  Throughout our catalog we proudly display the American flag and use the term “Made in America” in honor of that commitment.

For generations, “Made in America” has signified the quality, durability and innovation of the product that bore the mark. We believe that is still true today.

Our success is the result of years of continuous product development.  Our rod designs have been refined with feedback from the world’s best engine builders racing everywhere from the biggest NASCAR venues to local dirt tracks all over the U.S. and around the world.  Our experience cannot be copied.  Our knowledge of what works and what does not is without equal.

We do not and will not cut corners.  We utilize the best materials from the finest suppliers.  We use best practices in design and manufacturing.  Each and every Oliver rod is built with Craftsmanship, Precision, Durability and Strength.

The fact is, we build what are arguably the best connecting rods in the world using American craftsmen and American materials.  Oliver connecting rods are proudly, “Made in America.”
