New Piston Pics
I chose to go with a well known Japanese performance piston company for my pistons. The company is known as Nagasaki.
They are a very reputable scource throughout Japan for their in-depth research and design. I bought their ka24e pistons in
standard size. The bottom of the piston is lightweight forged aluminum. The top of the piston is flat for better combustion
and closeness to the head. The top of the piston is heat treated steel because of the engine temperatures that a high
compression piston can cause. These KA24e (sohc) pistons are high compression pistons for the KA24de (dohc) motors and will
be placed in engine #1 (ka24de) for an all motor build beginning with an 11:1 compression ratio.
