The piston is one of the most important components
within an engine. It can be subjected to directional
change up to 285 times every second and must withstand
acceleration forces up to 8500g. Cosworth high
performance forged pistons are designed and engineered
to withstand this type of punishment and still
perform. All Cosworth forged pistons are manufactured
using the same methods as Cosworth's Formula One
pistons and feature friction reducing skirt coating,
ultra strong pins, polished tops and patented anti-
detonation bands. Additionally, each application uses a
unique forging to minimize weight and ensure the
strongest possible piston design.
Other features: Proprietary Cosworth alloy, unique
forging technique, skirt coating, polished tops, anti-
detonation bands, high-strength wrist pin.
