RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
CP Pistons is backed by some of the brightest minds in the industry. This core group allows us to explore angles not possible using conventional methods. By enlisting the latest in cutting edge software packages, CP packages together creativity, experience and proven technology to bring you the best parts for your application. Our commitment to excellence continues to advance as the industry changes. This commitment has resulted in more forgings specific to certain applications, proprietary treated wrist pins and rings manufactured only for CP. Each of these aspects has been put through stringent research and development stages to ensure that our product will exceed your standards.
Each forging is designed using an advanced 3D modeling software package and is qualified through a rigorous Finite Element Analysis. 3D modeling enables CP to check thickness and weights before manufacturing allowing us to produce the strongest and lightest part for your application.
AT CP, ALL PISTONS ARE CREATED EQUAL!
Whether you are a professional racer or a weekend warrior, CP prides itself on giving you the best part possible for your applications. All pistons at CP are put through a demanding quality control system and precise computerized machining, ensuring that your piston is the best piston available.
A somewhat popular piston swap these days is to use Suzuki Vitara pistons in high performance D16Z6 engines. This is often done in an effort to get a low cost piston to use for turbo charged D16Z6 engines. There are sellers on Ebay who even tout this is a great idea and their ads show pistons for sale for this application in the $100 to $150 range. This is a case where "buyer beware" is very important. The majority of the Vitara pistons being sold are stock replacement, cast or hypereutectic pistons. The ads tout these is high performance pistons and avoid mentioning that they are in fact, stock replacement pistons, not performance pistons!
The only reason these pistons work in some D16Z6 turbo applications is because of the very low compression they provide in the D16Z6 engine, and small amounts of boost. You are giving up torque and power right away, as the compression is much lower than it needs to be, a full point or more in many cases. Any serious performance engine, and especially turbo engines, make more torque and power, and are much stronger, when built with forged pistons. A cast or hypereutectic piston will crack when its design strength is exceeded. A forged piston is far stronger than a cast or hypereutectic piston. In fact, hypereutectic pistons are still cast pistons, but they use a higher percentage of silicon in the base material, which makes them stronger than a standard cast piston. A hypereutectic piston is no where near as strong as a forged piston.
Beware of ads suggesting you use cheap cast or hyper Vitara pistons in your high output D16Z6 engine. If you break a piston, the cost to repair your engine will be much greater than what you save by not buying a top quality forged piston in the first place. Even if you choose to buy from a dealer other than us, please, buy D16Z6 forged pistons for your high performance or racing D16Z6 engine, your wallet will thank you down the road.
