Three of the most commonly asked questions we get are:
Piston to Wall Clearance:
Proper piston to wall clearance depends on the power level of the engine. Use the chart above as a guideline. Minimum clearances are fine for naturally aspirated street applications. However the clearance should be increased for higher output engines, especially with nitrous and forced induction (turbo and supercharged).
Where do I measure the piston skirts?
For the most accurate measurement place your micrometer at .500” from the bottom of the skirt 90 degrees from the pinhole.
