1.6L XE Omega/SBD Pot Piston Set 79.05mm
1.6L XE 79.05mm Omega/SBD pot piston set included rings, pins and circlips.
The Omega pot type pistons are extremely high quality and SBD have used them since we first started. The piston crown has been developed over time to what we believe is the best pot type piston available. They are available in a range of sizes. The piston is a circlip fixed design, ideal for use with our steel rods, which have bronze small end bushes, but if you are banned from changing to a steel rod the piston can be used on a standard press fit type small end, however please be careful when using standard rods due to their limited strength.
1.6L XE 79.05mm SBD/Omega Pot Piston Estimated Compression Ratio Chart
Note – All volumes must be checked on every engine build, we cannot be held responsible for errors – Information is for guidance only
You can change the compression ratio of your engine by skimming the cylinder head if you wish to increase the compression. On the pot type pistons, you can lower the compression by machining the intruder part of the piston down (pot type pistons can have their intruder machined down to the deck of the piston if required).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Whenever any engine is assembled, the volumes should be carefully measured to ensure the desired compression ratio is obtained or there could be a lack of performance if the compression is too low or damage could occur if the compression is too high or mechanical contact takes place. If you do not have the equipment to carry out this work, it is recommended that you have this done by a professional.
