The piston is one of the most important components within an engine. It can be subjected to directional change up to 285 times every second and must withstand acceleration forces up to 8500g. So, don't skimp when buying a set of pistons for your engine. Buying a set of high-performance pistons from Vivid Racing will give you the horsepower you need and peace of mind. Vivid Racing carries Forged Pistons as well as Aluminum pistons from manufacturers that demand quality and performance from their products
Besides your new performance pistons you're going to need a few more parts to finish your engine assembly. We carry Crankshafts, Connecting Rods, Valve Components, Bearings, Camshafts, Stroker Kits, Stud Kits and Internal Bolt Kits.
A moving part of the internal combustion engine (ICE) is the crankshaft. Its principal task is to transform the piston's linear motion into rotational motion. The pistons are attached over the connecting rods to the crankshaft.
The connecting rod translates the piston's linear down and up moving into the crankshaft's rotational movement, and is thus subject to stress, compression, twisting and buckling. These connecting rods create a connection between the piston and the crankshaft and therefore distribute more power. Its functions are for rotating the crankshaft, aids in building a high-performance automobile, fluid movement, and especially it withstands pressure from the piston.
It is a mechanical device that controls fluid and pressure movement within a system or process that stops and starts fluid flow, controls fluid flow volumes, and regulates downstream system or process pressure.
The main bearings in a piston engine are the bearings that keep the crankshaft in place and allow it to rotate within the block of the engine. Main bearings are usually plain bearings or journal bearings which are held in place by the block of the engine and the caps. Camshafts are used in internal combustion engines (to operate the intake and exhaust valves), mechanically-controlled ignition systems and early electric motor speed controllers.
A stroker kit increases an engine's displacement by lengthening the stroke of the piston.
The High Strength Oversized stud kits eliminate the need for doweling the engine block on high boost race engines. A long-bolt or through-bolt engine is an internal piston combustion engine where bolts or studs keep down the cylinder head according to normal practice.
Vivid Racing carries High-Performance Pistons from all the top manufacturers in the automotive industry. Our manufacturers include: Brian Crower Pistons, Cosworth Pistons, CP Pistons, HKS Pistons, JUN Pistons, Porsche Pistons and Tomei Pistons.
