Tomei 86.5mm Forged Piston Set Nissan RB26DETT Forged ConstructionMore resistant to heat fracturingBuilt for High HP/Torque racing applications
Tomei began operations in 1968 as a race car tuner in Japan. Over the last 40 years Japan has emerged as one of the leaders in automotive research, racing, and culture. Tomei products have been utilized in nearly every motor sport imaginable. Tomei's racing heritage means their research and design team have first hand knowledge of the extreme demands racing puts on an engine. Using only the highest quality materials means that Tomei's products can handle the intense strain and heat a purpose built engine will experience whether it be on the street or the track. Tomei's attention to detail is second to none. All of their products are thoroughly researched and engineered to achieve optimal efficiency. Because of even miniscule differences in measurements can cause catastrophic engine failure, all Tomei products fall within strict tolerances. Tomei machines all of their engine components to enhance airflow and ensure proper fitment and seal.
Tomei Forged pistons are a must for any car that is making higher horsepower than stock and is being driven aggressively. Forged pistons have inherent advantages in terms of density, ultimate strength, and durability. Forging eliminates metal porosity, improves ductility, and generally allows the piston to run cooler than if it were cast. Within reason, forgings can be lightened without adversely affecting structural integrity. Tomei's forged pistons are much more durable than the factory cast units. When subjected to extreme conditions and heat cast metal is much more likely to fracture than forged metal. Unlike other components that wear out gradually, a shattered piston happens instantaneously and causes major engine damage, destroying your entire motor and causing thousands in repair bills. Upgrading your engine???s internals gives you the peace of mind knowing that your engine can handle being pushed to its limit.
Mr. Seiichi Suzuki initially forged Tomei is a tuning factory for race cars back in 1968. From that day on, Tomei achieved excellent results in various motor sports categories. Tomei was then recognized for its technology, performance and reliability that we had cultivated into our own design products and had a large support base from motor sports end users and tuners.
With the new market trends and demands, motoring enthusiasts wanted better performance to suit the new modern lifestyle. This trend helped set the stage where originality can play an active part in the motor sports scene and personal motoring lifestyle.
