PERFORMANCE PUSHRODS
GM Performance Parts pushrods are available in two materials. Pushrods made from 1010 mild steel are suitable for high-performance street cars, powerboats, street rods, and limited competition applications. Premium quality pushrods made from 4130 chrome moly steel are highly recommended for maximum effort racing engines.
All GM Performance Parts pushrods are case hardened for use with pushrod guideplates. They can be used with all conventional hydraulic and mechanical flat tappets and most aftermarket roller lifters.
