World renowned piston manufacturers JE Pistons along with NITTO
Performance Engineering have combined craftsmanship and knowledge to
forge the JE / NITTO Sports Compact range of pistons. All pistons are
designed to NITTO’s stringent standards and include a redesigned piston
for increased strength and a lower friction coefficient resulting in
more power and superior ring control.
latest advances in technology and engine power reaching levels
previously unheard of, has seen increased demands placed on piston
design to reliably cope with the extreme conditions commonly encountered
today. NITTO has addressed this problem by introducing their latest
range of pistons and related components ensuring the complete range have
what it takes to handle the extreme demands of today’s engines.
JE / NITTO pistons are forged from low silicone content T6 – 2618
Aluminium Alloy and finished off with normally optional upgrades
including contact reduction grooves, accumulator groove, JE Pro Seal
Premium ring sets and upgraded 9310 tool steel piston pins on all kits
supplied. Ensuring you have what it takes to deliver results on and off
Custom application pistons are also available by contacting your Nitto Sales Representative.
- T6 2618 FORGED ALUMINIUM ALLOY LOW SILICONE CONTENT MATERIAL
- High silicone content pistons (typically A4032 alloy) are a harder
material but brittle when compared to the T6 2618 low silicone content
pistons and leave them open to increased failure under high combustion
pressures found in moderate to hard tuned turbocharged performance
engines. High silicone content pistons also have a faster failure rate
should severe detonation occur.
- CONTACT REDUCION GROOVES
- A series of small grooves machined into the piston area between the
outer edge of the crown and the first ring land which reduces piston to
bore friction and increases horse power and durability.
- ACCUMULATOR GROOVE
- A large vee shaped groove machined into the piston area between the
first and second ring land, minimising power robbing ring flutter under
high RPM resulting in increased combustion pressure sealing and engine
- 9310 TOOL STEEL PISTON PINS
- Upgraded high quality / high strength piston pins that offer further
reliability in the transmission of large torque and horsepower levels.
