JE Forged Pistons
These are a complete set of JE pistons for all 1.8T 20V Turbo engines. JE Pistons make for a stout reliable engine for daily driving, road racing, drag racing, or full out competition racing. Built to withstand serious performance punishment, JE forged pistons have been specifically designed and engineered for acceleration forces of more than 8000 G’s and directional changes exceeding 200 times every second. Additionally, each forging is application specific minimizing weight and ensuring a reliable interaction with the rotating assembly. JE shelf pistons are available in a selection of bore sizes and compression ratios, if you do not see exactially what you are looking for, contact us for a custom piston quote. For use with 20mm wrist pin.
Includes JE wire locks, Pro Seal piston rings, and standard JE wrist pins
No dish deburring or preperation needed
Individually prepared inspection report of dimensional conformity
Each piston individually serialized for complete traceability
23-point post-production inspection conducted by certified personnel
Tighter tolerances on 14 critical areas of the piston
All critical surfaces machined in dedicated Critical Manufacturing Cell
Optional JE Piston Upgrades
Coatings may take 2-3 weeks as they are non-stock
Tuff Skirt ®
JE Pistons trademarked coating Tuff Skirt is a lubricating, anti-friction / anti-wear coating applied to the piston skirt designed to withstand many different types of endurance racing.
Thermal Barrier Crown
The thermal barrier crown coating is applied to the piston dome and is designed to reflect heat into the combustion chamber. This increases exhaust gas velocity, greatly improves scavenging potential, and extends piston life by decreasing the rate of thermal transfer.
JE Tool Steel Wrist Pins
JE Tool Steel Wrist Pins are through-hardened high-carbon bearing steel for forced induction or nitrous-fed racing applications and offer high-strength with low ductility. Employing the latest in technology, each pin is checked to ensure the highest quality and roundness.
