Tucked away at the back of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall is the 2013 SEMA Show’s new products showcase. While the vast majority of the trade show’s buzz is generated by the mass of custom cars that converges on southern Nevada, the event’s meat and potatoes has always been aftermarket parts and the industry that supports them.
If we’re being honest, not much new Honda gear was featured in the display for this edition of the show. In spite of the off year, we still found a handful of highlights worth writing about.
Eagle Specialty Products H23/F22 Connecting Rods
Eagle now offers forged 4340 steel H-beam rods for the H23 and F22 engines. The company recommends them for racing and performance applications up to 900 horsepower.
