ZRP Opel OPC Je Pistons 1.6L Z16LER 1.8L A18 X18 COMBO KIT +1.00MM BORE

ZRP Opel OPC Je Pistons 1.6L Z16LER 1.8L A18 X18 ,X18,A16 I-Beam rods & Je Pistons

RODS Dimensions 129.75mm x 18.00mm


Opel 1.6L & 1.8L A16/A18 I-Beam Connecting rods are manufactured from 4340 high tensile steel, they are designed for high performance, extreme durability and extra rigidity. These rods have a Tapered Pin End, so they are compatible with OEM pistons. The bushings made from AMPCO 18 material for excellent resistance to wear and fatigue and have radial groove for oil reservoir. They are shot peened to relieve stress from the material and multi-stage heat treated to increase rigidity. The tight tolerances in the production process, ensure a perfect fitment while optimizing the oil clearances. Bend and twist is tightly controlled.

Each rod includes ARP 2000 cap fasteners that are rated at 220,000psi, optional ARP L19 material 260.00psi available as an upgrade and the whole kit is supplied with ARP moly and full fitting instructions.

About Je Pistons
The top engine builders in NASCAR, ALMS, NHRA, AMA Supercross and others choose JE Pistons over any other brand. For over 70 years, JE's position at the forefront of performance piston manufacturing has been a result of continuous research and development of unique materials, piston designs and technologies. Utilizing State-Of-The-Art CNC machines for manufacturing along with purpose-designed forgings, JE is able to maintain exacting specifications on each and every piston and hold tolerances to millionths of an inch. Also available from JE is industry-leading processes like Ultra Crown, a Digital Three Dimensional piston crown machining process and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). FEA is a computer process whereby stress and fatigue are tested on a computer model before it goes into production. The JE quality management system is ISO 9000:2015 certified. JE provides customers the highest standards in quality control. In addition, we also have State-Of-The-Art inspection equipment and testing equipment which enables us to constantly bring you, the customer, the very latest in piston design configurations.
