  • Standard Kits (Type 1)

    Standard piston and cylinder kits for all Type 1 engines - High quality cylinders cast from proprietary tooling are carefully inspected then honed to exacting tolerances in a cross hatch pattern to promote quick ring seating.

    The hypereutectic pistons are cast from a special high silicon content alloy to provide high strength, better cooling, less scuffing as well as resistance to excessive expansion at high temperatures.

    All of the “stroker P&L” pistons are of the slipper skirt design. The pistons are graphite coated (87mm & larger) and carefully inspected for any flaws or defects. They are then arranged and sorted by size and weight. Rings are installed setting the proper end gap and the pins are fitted to each piston.

    The Pistons and liners go through a rigorous quality control series of tests and are balanced within plus or minus 1 gram of each other.

    It is also important to note, that I have both naturally aspirated and turbo charged engines producing over 180 HP with these kits.
