With 50 years of world class engine design and manufacturing
experience, Cosworth's intimate knowledge of the interaction
between the piston and other engine components gives the us the
distinct advantage in piston design resulting in the finest piston
The piston is one of the most important components within the
engine. It can be subjected to directional change up to 285 times
every second and must withstand acceleration forces of 8,500 Gs.
Cosworth high performance forged pistons are designed and
engineered to withstand this type of punishment and still perform.
All Cosworth pistons are manufactured using the same methods as our
Formula One pistons and include features such as anti-scuff skirt
coating, ultra-strong pins, polished top and patented
anti-detonation bands. Additionally, each application uses a unique
forging to minimize weight and ensure the strongest possible
