These pistons are forged from 2618T aluminum alloy and machined on dedicated CNC machine cells to tight tolerances. 2618 aluminum has a lower silicon content than other alloys. That makes the pistons stronger and more ductile—perfect for high-load, high-stress applications like superchargers, turbochargers, or nitrous oxide.
Other features include:• Rated to handle up to 1,500 horsepower• -21.1cc dish with two valve reliefs• Lateral gas-ported to maintain tighter piston-to-bore clearances for better sealing• 10.5:1 compression on E85 with 1.338-inch compression height• .990-inch chromoly wristpins for use with wire locks• Choice of 4.225- or 4.250-inch bore sizes
The factory harmonic damper on your modern GM, Ford, or Mopar V8 are ‘tuned’ to absorb what’s called torsional vibration in the engine’s normal operating RPM range. Performance modifications, particularly ones that increase torque, produce added vibration in an RPM range that the elastomer damper wasn’t designed to handle. That vibration will accelerate component wear,
