There is nothing wrong with these early designs. Kinda like, if it's not broke.

But these designs are old and not that efficient in making power. Our business is unlike Charles business. He supply's volume designs where if it fits your build, it's s good choice. Our product is for those that want something different, more modern and with these new designs weight and other factors are considered important.

The line of rods and pistons we are working on will fit all standard deck heights but will have different rod lengths and piston comp heights. We leave the stock dimension config's to those that supply existing designs.
The sets we have built in partnership with Mahle Motorsports are modern interpretations of the NLA part, with obvious improvements in piston design, coating, rings, etc., however Neil is correct that they are all designed to work with stock connecting rod and crankshaft configurations.

We do work with our other piston partners JE and CP for fully custom pistons as a customer's project requires on a daily basis as well.
