    how much lighter are the pins and what does the coating on pins and pistons do? Lastly, where do we find these hi tech parts?

    Coatings are really big now. In fact big power can`t be made without them. There are some boyz out there now that are running boost with "open loop" cooling that need to coat the tops of there pistons to hold heat. They`ll fiigure it out eventually.

    wrist ins

    coating are extremely important especially with titanium. not every coating is the same. theses wrist pins are coated with casidiam which is the only one that works with titanium. the piston crowm is a special ceramic coating that is used in nitruos application. the piston skirt is a heavy duty poly pc9 coating that will not wear off after break and helps with piston scuffing . the wrist pins save 40 grms over stock.

    The pistons are NOT a problem area! The head IS!


    And the weight savings, all though important, are a money pit with the counter balance shaft. From what I've seen, the more exotic the less time it runs! And the more your wrenching.

    Thanks for the explanation. BTW, your crank looks sweet.
