Some of the engine services we can supply
Piston top polishing and
balancing of piston/wrist pin

Piston tops are polished to a near mirror
finish, this prevents carbon buildup on the
face and helps reflect heat away from the

We can polish new pistons from SCAT or
EMPI or you can send us your pistons.

Piston polishing $35

The tolerance on stock piston weight in a
matched set is 5 grams. We will balance
your pistons and wrist pin combos to 0.1
gram. This is 50 times better than stock!
This makes a huge difference in engine
"smoothness" and allows for the potentional
of running at higher rpm.  We also supply a
before and after sheet so you can see just
what you have.

We can balance new pistons from SCAT or
EMPI or you can send us your pistons.

piston / wrist pin balance $40

SAVE MONEY AND DO BOTH, it just makes

polish pistons and balance pistion/ wrist pin
combo = $70
Modify lifter for 100% oiling. Stock lifter is on
the left, you see it has 2 groves, but only 1 oil
hole. This means oil only moves forward to the
rocker arms when the lifter is up, when the
valve is open. This is about 20% of the time the
engine is running.

I modify the lifters to widen the groove over the
entire range of motion like the lifter on the right.
100% oiling mean 5 times more oil to the
valves, 5 times the oil to the head, means five
times the ability to remove heat from the heads.

Then i balance each lifter to within 0.1 gram.

$50 to do this modification.   
This is an old racer's trick, add an oil hole to the bottom of the con rod to spray oil on the back side of the opposite piston, they say this
knocks 100'F off the piston temps. I drill a hole through the bearing and the conrod bottom, then taper it. Then i make a matching tapered
brass plug that is pressed in. The taper means that the higher the oil pressure, the harder the seal, impossible to blow out. I then drill a
very small hole in the brass, like 0.5mm or smaller. $200 for this modification.
Balance conrods to within 0.1 grams.
combine this with all the other balancing
makes for a smoother running engine

$50 for this modification.
