1.6L EcoBoost SBD Piston and Rod Combination


Special offer on SBD/Omega & SBD/Saenz 1.6L EcoBoost piston and rod combination


SBD have designed a forged piston for the 1.6L EcoBoost with Omega, we have retained the original compression ratio and the crown design of the original piston due to its good design. The new piston is considerably stronger than the original and has a low friction coated skirt. The piston weighs 235g on its own and 327g including the gudgeon pin, rings and circlip as opposed to the standard Ford piston which weigh 347g.
Compression Height – standard
Pin Size – standard (21.00mm)
Pin Boss – designed for a parallel small end
Due to the new detail design of the small end, which allows improved strength and durability in all applications, the piston should only be used with our SBD conrod ROD-FD-ECO1.6-01S, which has been designed for use in conjunction with this piston.


SBD have designed a special rod for the 1.6L EcoBoost, after consultation with Omega pistons, who manufacture our pistons as to the best design, it was decided to change the small end feature to give a better strength to the rod and piston itself for all applications. You will need to purchase our forged pistons: PIST-OM-ECO1.6-79.00XS, which must be used in conjunction with the conrods.

It was also decided to improve the big end bearing features and added a tabs location in to the conrod. We have sourced a Mahle Motorsport big end bearing BRG-ECO1.6-SP-01-R, which allows further improvement in location and retention within the conrod.

Our new conrod design is a significant upgrade in strength and design to the standard item. The rods come complete with 5/16” 625+ type bolts (RB4K-1.260).
Weight – 416g including bolts (standard rods 410g)
Length – standard
Pin Size – standard
Small End Type – parallel, for use with SBD Piston ONLY
Small End Bush – clearance set for 21.00mm pin
Big End Bearing Housing tailored to suit Mahle Motorsport Big End Bearings with tab BRG-ECO1.6-SP-01-R
