2.0L XE SBD/Omega Slipper Piston Set, 88.00mm
2.0L XE SBD/Omega 88.00mm slipper piston set includes rings, pins and circlips.
When using slipper pistons there are a lot of stories around, but most of these tales have come from using inferior products. We have used Omega slipper pistons for many years now and we find they are, in fact, more reliable and create less wear than any other design of piston, whether used in rally, race, sprint or hillclimb engines. When you wish to produce the ultimate engine, the Omega slipper piston would always be our first choice.
We have taken all the latest advancements in technology and together with all the improvements we have discovered from our engine developments and used this to design a completely new piston for the ever popular 2.0L XE. Omega have designed a completely new forging, it has significantly increased strength over any piston we have produced in the past and great care has been taken to ensure no machining is required to the internal structure in order to maintain maximum strength.
We have reduced the pin size from 20mm down to 18mm. We have been able to reduce the piston pocket depth due to our advanced cam designs, this has allowed us to reduce piston crown height to improve flame travel with the combustion area and yet still maintain optimum compression. The total weight of the piston has been reduced by 25g over the original slipper piston and the total weight is now down to 314g for 88mm bore, this includes the rings, pin and circlips.
Our con-rod design ROD-VX-2.0XE-149-01S (for standard crankshaft or normal bigend width journal steel crankshaft) and ROD-VX-2.0XE-149-02S (SBD steel crankshaft CRK-1) must be used with this piston.
