Silv-O-Lite Hypereutectic Pistons - Engine Builder Magazine

Silv-O-Lite Hypereutectic Pistons

The pistons use an aluminum alloy containing 15%-16% silicon, making them stronger than standard cast pistons.

A set of Silv-O-Lite Hypereutectic Pistons will help make rebuilding the Modular V8 engine in your 1997 to 2020 F-150 more affordable. The pistons use an aluminum alloy containing 15%-16% silicon. This makes them stronger than standard cast pistons with less thermal expansion and more resistance to scuffs and seizures in the cylinder bores. The alloy also reduces ring groove wear and resists cracking in the crown area where operating temperatures are severe. The additional silicon also helps keep heat in the combustion chamber and prevents heat transfer. That’s a lot of piston for the money.
