The Gen V LT1 engine is capable of producing some serious horsepower. Many shops and individuals have proven this over the last year. Unfortunately, for too many of us, we have found that the stock pistons/rings are the weak link when used in forced induction applications above 700RWHP. 

Over the course of the past twelve months we have had five Stingrays from other shops across the country as well as one of our own customers experience an engine failure due to the OE pistons. Often times piston failure is directly related to detonation, but after inspecting several of these engines for signs of detonation and not finding any and seeing the same areas breaking on the pistons it was obvious the piston simply cannot take the cylinder pressure. 

With the Gen V LT1 engine requiring cylinder head removal as well as oil pan removal for our Gen V Cam Kit, we decided this would be a perfect opportunity to replace the pistons to ensure an increased level of reliability in our builds. The next step was to design a forged piston that is not only stronger than the OE piston, but also one that could be used as a direct drop in with no balancing/machining. We do recommend a light hone on any engine for a smooth cylinder wall prior to installation

Vengeance Racing is proud to offer fully forged direct replacement pistons for your Gen V LT1!!!! After working with our friends at Wiseco for several months we have received our first production set and will be installing these early next week.
