Forged Automotive Pistons: The Heart of Your Engine

If you want improved performance and reliability for your engine, look to forged automotive pistons from Wiseco. As the driving force within your cylinders, engine pistons convert the energy from the combustion process into mechanical motion. Serving as vital auto components, they interact directly with the fuel-air mixture and spark plug, contributing to your engine’s overall power, fuel efficiency and longevity. Stock pistons
