More Tech For Vortec
Diamond Pistons announces the release of its direct replacement forged piston for Chevrolet Vortec 8.1L (496ci) big-block truck and marine engine applications. Unlike the GM piston, which is a cast-aluminum hypereutectic construction, the Diamond offering is a forging with side reliefs that accommodate a shorter, lighter piston pin which results in increase stability under high load. The forging is hewn from 4032 alloy, weighs 515 grams, and incorporates a single 0.107-inch-deep pocket for the 2.19-inch diameter intake valve. Like the factory casting, the new Diamond forging retains a 9.1:1 compression ratio and the standard ring pack. Premium 8620 case-hardened chrome molybdenum wristpins are supplied and optional 9310 endurance alloy pins or H13 Tool Steel pins are also available. Diamond forged pistons are amenable to standard-grade gasoline and are a great platform for a nominal shot of NOS or a low-boost forced-air induction system.
