Once again, Integrated Engineering has raised the bar for the VW/Audi 20-valve turbo market. The new IE Tuscan I-beam rods are stronger, lighter, and generally more bad-ass than the H-beam rods that put them at the forefront of the 1.8t big power game.

With an FEA-optimized design and over a year and a half of testing, IE’s Tuscan rods have held up to 1000+ bhp on a 4-cylinder 20v turbo, while saving around 20 grams per rod over their drop-in H-beam rods.

With painstaking application-specific design, quality materials, precision machining & finishing, and the highest level of quality control, these rods are sure to be a heavyweight contender in the high-horsepower VW/Audi aftermarket. Combined with Integrated Engineering’s full catalog of performance camshafts, stroker kits, and other go-fast goodies, IE seems set on making a name for themselves, again and again and again.

Contact us if you have any questions regarding Integrated Engineering’s product line, availability, or pricing, or to discuss your engine build.
