Odon, IN – July 25, 2017 – WAGLER COMPETITION PRODUCTS has developed a new forged Duramax connecting rod that will make obtaining four-digit horsepower goals more affordable. Wagler uses an as-forged manufacturing process that forges the rod to shape and requires much less machining to finish. The result is a forged rod that will handle up to 1,000 HP for a fraction of the cost of the Competition Series rods.
