New from Howards Cams - the expanded line of Pro Max forged pistons. These pistons feature a unique forging design for the ultimate in strength and performance. See more details below.
The recently introduced Pro Max forged piston line from Howards Cams is available for Chevy LS engines, as well as both Ford and Chevy small- and big-block engines. These pistons feature a unique forging design for the ultimate in strength and performance. All Howards HRC Racing Pistons are forged from 2618 billet bar stock and then heat treated and aged to a T61 condition (2618-T61). This material has less than 1% silicon particulate content and has the ability to keep its shape under extreme pressure and high rpm. Additionally, skirt shrinking is not a problem with Howards HRC Racing Pistons.
Other features that combine to make HRC Pro Max pistons an intelligent choice include: oversized and radiused valve pockets, accumulator grooves for improved ring seal, lightweight aircraft-quality wrist pins, CNC-turned skirts, forced pin oilers and machined oil drain-back holes.
