Video: A Look At Scat Crankshafts’ Manufacturing Process

The folks at Scat Crankshafts must be doing something the right way; the company was founded over 50 years ago, and today builds a large array of crankshafts for the performance industry. On top of that, they also supply General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler with particular parts and pieces for various engines.

In this three-plus-minute look at the company’s massive manufacturing and machining facility, we get a look behind the scenes at the operation and many of its nuances.

From cast crankshafts and I-beam connecting rods to billet crankshafts and forged H-beam connecting rods using a variety of quality ARP fasteners, SCAT has products available for most domestic applications from standard small and big-block Chevrolet, LS series engines, Ford’s Windsor and FE platforms, various Chrysler and Pontiac fitments, and more.

On top of their large domestic coverage, they offer fitments for many engines in the Sport Compact arena; many of Honda’s four-cylinders are covered with both standard and lightweight crankshafts and forged H-beam connecting rods available.

Billet crankshafts and billet connecting rods for the Nissan VQ35DE engine are available along with billet cranks and forged rods for the Subaru WRX 2.0/2.2/2.5 platforms. Mitsubishi’s 4G63 and 64 are also represented, as are numerous other SC platforms from Audi to Volkswagen – just check out their catalog.
