The heart of any hi-performance engine is the crankshaft. Counter weighted crankshafts greatly reduce power robbing and damaging crank-flex, high RPM harmonics and vibration through the entire power range. EMPI’s counter weighted crankshafts are perfect for the racer on a budget. This crank is precision ground, micro-polished, nitrided and balanced. Features include: forged from 4140 chromoly, radiused standard/standard journals, chamfered oil holes, 8 dowel, 8mm dowel pins and cross drilled. It uses stock VW main and rod bearings.
