    how come i never hear of anyone using the hyperblahblah pistons (the low comp kind) in a turbo build? maybe its just i dont understand the diff of a hyperblahblah piston

    Hyperteutectic pistons are basically the same as stock, they just change the silicone percentage content to try and make a more durable piston. Great for NA or low N2O applications. But if your going high boost you'll need forged goodies to make it last.

      forged are 10000x better/stronger
      those hyperutectic(sp?) are only a little bit stronger than stock
      ill probably be using some stock comp. ones for a turbo engine

          ^^^ good explinations

          basically, because of the increased silicone content, they're stronger but are also brittle. I woudln't run them with boost at all.

            I was under the impression that stock pistons were hyperutectic [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_scratch.gif[/img]

              they are but not as much(i guess?)

              I think Mike(SDA) had them in the supercharged car, but i could be wrong

                he has, and he's detonated on them too, but I still don't suggest them to people.

                  Forged pistons are only a buffer.

                  I run the sohc hyper pistons.

                    a buffer that helps you not have to rebuild all the time. while stock is not as expensive as a one time cost like forged pistons, if you do it alot, it adds up fast.

                      Using the word buffer seems misleading IMO. It makes it seem like with proper tuning, hypers could hold the same amount of torque as forged; which just isn't true.

                        Not really. Forged pistons are a buffer for the time you are tuning, getting the most power possible out of your engine. You simply cannot do that with cast pistons.

                        I think that the sealed power pistons can handle 250whp, with a proper tune. Getting to that power level without breaking a piston is the trick. At that level, the rods become questionable too.

                        in short, run forged pistons if you want power.

                          So are you saying if you could perfectly tune your setup and had forged rods, you could run stock pistons with 400-500whp or more?

                              forged pistons (turbo pistons) are built for a turbo motor, ie thicker ring lands and beefyer skirts and tops.
