CYLINDER BARRELS start out as high grade aircraft quality, through-hardened 4140 forged steel. Then the cylinder bores, for our higher horsepower engines (300-500 series), go through a case hardening nitride process which gives the cylinder barrels excellent resistance to wear and greater durability at higher temperatures.

CYLINDER HEADS are machined on computer controlled machining centers. Custom designed computer controlled equipment is used in the assembly of the critical head to barrel joint.Features
