Well here you have it! The first sets of production connecting rods have made it to ZFGR. I'm not going to lie to you guys, these have been a thorn in my side for years! We started the "built engine" project for the explorer ST in 2021, and fit the first 3d printed prototype connecting rod in September of 2021. However, due to covid and the company moving it's production facility they were not able to deliver on their design. After being strung along by 2 more companies we landed at Saenz Preperformance. There were able to design and produce a connecting rod for us in a little over 6 months and have been great to work with. Early next week these bad boys are off to machine shop with our custom spec Wiseco piston. At ZFGR we have put a lot of time, effort and money into continuing to develop this planform, and we will continue to have projects in the works as the platform progresses!

Haven't followed your work on the ST much. Are you thinking that these are the limiting factors in even more boost than larger turbos?

Keep the Braptor options coming!

Yes eventually they will be. We really haven't found the true power limit yet. Sorry far we have taken the factory engine to 776 awhp on a "big turbo kit". The goal in that market is make 1000 awhp!

And can/will you offer Raptor transmission tuning? As you probably know, as evidenced in many posts here on the forum, it really needs some adjustments. The most significant issues are in Sport Mode. TIA
