Diamond Racing Pistons has announced new, sturdy 2618 billet aluminum pistons that replace the original equipment aluminum castings for Ford Power Stroke V8 6.0 and 7.3L turbocharged diesel engines. The pistons receive the protection of a Double Diamond coat that adds longevity, reduces friction and decreases wear. Shelf-stock part numbers are available in all common bore sizes, while custom units are offered in virtually any bore size.
Standard dish volumes and swirl chambers with undercut rims to promote turbulence are used for shelf-stock part numbers. Conveniently, custom dish designs are produced to customers’ specifications. Further customized options are engineered for competition applications, including side gas-ports to enhance ring seal.
To complete the kit, Diamond provides a three-ring pack using a steel top ring, an RBT second ring and a conventional oil control ring. Their thicknesses measure 1/16, 1/16, and 3/16in. www.DiamondRacing.net
