Ideal for OEM rebuilds and mildly modified performance engines, the kits include OEM-replacement hypereutectic aluminum pistons with moly-coated skirts. The ring packs feature ductile iron top rings with a ceramic-chrome facing is very hard and provides high levels of scuff and heat resistance, low friction, and excellent sealing to prevent blowby.
The iron secondary ring has a phosphate coating that acts as a rust preventative to prevent corrosion and galling during engine startup and break-in. The oil control ring is cast iron embedded with self-lubricating graphite flakes.
