Summit Racing Forged Pro Pistons

Made in the USA, Summit Racing Forged Pro Pistons are made using ultra-modern technology and materials so they’re stronger and lighter.

Back in the day, most vehicle manufacturers built engines with cast pistons. However, adding high-performance parts and spinning your engine to higher rpms can spell doom for the stock cast slugs. That’s why your high-performance engine build needs Summit Racing Forged Pro Pistons. Combined with a Summit Racing forged crankshaft and performance connecting rods, you can save a whole bunch of money making a whole bunch of horsepower! 

Made in the USA, Summit Racing Forged Pro Pistons are made using ultra-modern technology and materials so they’re stronger and lighter. Features include:

• Reduced weight to take stress off the crank, rods, and block
• Extra thick ring lands to tolerate moderate amounts of nitrous and boost
• Critical areas deburred for more strength and to reduce the chances of detonation
• Designed for use with nitride steel top ring packs and gas-ported piston rings to reduce friction and bore wear
• Special skirt profiles allow tighter clearances to reduce piston rock for quieter operation 

Summit Racing Forged Pro Pistons are available for small and big block Chevy, Chrysler 360/383/440, Ford 302/460, Oldsmobile 350/455, and Pontiac 400/455.
