With 50 years of world class engine design and manufacturing experience,
Cosworth’s intimate knowledge of the interaction between the piston and
other engine components gives the us the distinct advantage in piston design
resulting in the finest piston available.
The piston is one of the most important components within the engine. It can
be subjected to directional change up to 285 times every second and must
withstand acceleration forces of 8,500 Gs. Cosworth high performance forged
pistons are designed and engineered to withstand this type of punishment
and still perform. All Cosworth pistons are manufactured using the same
methods as our Formula One pistons and include features such as anti-scuff
skirt coating, ultra-strong pins, polished top and patented anti-detonation bands.
Additionally, each application uses a unique forging to minimize weight and ensure
the strongest possible piston
