SRP Pro pistons logoSRP Professional pistons

SRP pistons include innovative features used in professional racing such as lightweight forged side relief (FSR) forgings, high quality wrist pins, and precision CNC machined ring grooves and skirts. Furthermore every package includes JE Pro Seal Premium Piston Rings. The included ring set features a 1.2 premium steel top ring, 1.5mm Napier (hooked face) second ring and 3.0mm standard tension oil ring. Each piston is designed and produced in the US at the advanced manufacturing center.

Product Manager, Alan Stevenson explained “This new line of SRP Pistons will change everything the industry knows about affordable forged pistons. The features you would normally find in a high quality set  can be found at an affordable price. There is nothing comparable on the market.”  The development of  the product took place over the course of an entire year. The  designs were created using 3D computer modelling and tested for strength using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). JE custom pistons

Multiple revisions were made to optimize the strength and weight before manufacturing started. Unlike other  manufacturers, JE/SRP Pistons manufacture billet pistons from solid pucks of aluminum for dyno testing in actual engines before approving the final forging designs. “This gives us the opportunity to make small adjustments to the design to improve performance and strength prior to adding them to our catalog. We also verify our products outperform our competitors” said Design Engineer, Moises Romo.

Custom JE Pistons

Samples are digitized on one of the companies three CMM’s (Coordinate measuring machine). Using this data they then create a Solid Works CAD which then allows us to make modifications to meet the customer’s requirements to the model prior to the custom piston being manufactured.
