How do you improve upon a really solid piston design? Help out where you can with thermal management, that's how. :thumbsup:



These are Kevin's pistons with a thermal barrier coating on the tops, to help minimize heat transfer to the piston keeping it cooler, while minimizing hotspots on the piston top. The skirts have a dry film lube applied to them to aid in lubricity and minimize galling. Finally the bottoms (inside of the skirts) have a thermal dispersant to help shed oil, and to help pull heat away from the piston. All good stuff :eveilgrin

Thanks again for the support Kevin!

Those are pricey $650 a set for those they are custom 10.8:1 compression. Bob has my info in the box for weight on the pistons. The off the shelf pistons in a 8.8:1 are $550 and around 368g-378g.
According to the spec sheet here, these pistons weigh in at 401g (keep in mind these are custom not the shelf stocked item)
