Default Speed Rod in a Stock V Spec

Does anybody know if the speed connecting rod will fit in the stock v spec?

Yes, I run the Speed rod in my V-Spec. It is actually a better rod b/c OS knife-edges the con-rod on the speed, letting the engine run smoother.

Do you have the manual? Most of the time they have an exploded view with the part numbers.

That looks right to me but the manual would be 100% guarantee that the right parts are ordered.

Speed rod fits the stock v-spec perfectly. It's actually a good upgrade. You might be able to save some money by getting the ninja rod(same as the speed).

Here are the correct bearings

I like to replace the wrist pin and clips when I do a rod change too. Just a personal preference, but it's cheap and gives you that added security and peace of mind.

Another good thing about the speed rod is that is has an oiling hole that standard v spec that doesn't have. That was my main reason for installing it.

Default Someone told me

Stock V-Spec does not need the Speed rod as they drill a hole for oil on the crankshaft instead ....

Yeah, I have noticed that inventory has been down lately. I assume it is because of the current state of the economy. They can usually order things for you if they don't have them listed as in stock.

I put rear ceramics from "Ready Rollers" in my VSPECs (2 engines) only time well tell how good they are, but so far they're great... slightly less expensive than TKO, (just under $20 each) and in stock.

The service I got from them was great... fast replies to email, fast shipping...
