Pistons and rods

Does anyone know if anyone of the bottom end aftermarket companies have pistons and rods for our cars? I want to run some nitrous ( like a 100 or more ) and even turbo ( since im almost convinced that we can get it ). But i know that our stock components wont be able to run em ( since they are pressed aluminum ) Let me know, cuz i need it BAAAAAADDDDDDDD!!!!!!!

i think you can contact JE pistons, and if they dont already have pistons made, i think they will make them for you, of course at a premium price i belive [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG]

7th gen civics use oval pistons, I think, so it's gonna be next to impossible finding replacements just yet...

A bunch of people have to start putting turbos and/or nitrous in their cars to create the demand for stronger bottom ends...then we might get something.

Edit: Read about the pistons and engine here

Arias and JE will make custom pistons for you at around $400-$500 for a set of 4. Turnaround time is kind of lengthy though (about a month for JE, 2 months for Arias).

400 to 500 dollars isn't a lot of money to spend on something that is needed IMO. and a month of waiting is definitely worth it.

[hr]No matter which grade, all new Civic engines receive several updates and refinements: swirl intake ports that help optimize fuel dissemination; more efficient four-port fuel injectors; redesigned combustion chambers that feature better squish shape; equal-length intake manifold runners that reduce noise and improve torque; more rigid cylinder blocks; stronger engine mounts and a stiffer crankshaft. [hr]

[hr]Additionally, new pistons are used that feature an asymmetrical oval shape, which maintains a tighter tolerance on the exhaust side so they seal better during the combustion phase. Trick[hr]


That's what the man said
