Wiseco Forged Pistons Skunk2 Alpha Rods VTEC B18A B18B B20 W B16A Head 84mm 10.5. Wiseco pistons go through more finishing processes than any other piston on the market, without driving the cost up. They come with more features standard than any other piston on the market, at a more affordable price than many of the competitors. All of the Wiseco pistons for this application come standard with anti-friction skirt coating which helps minimize scuffing during break-in and lower friction on the cylinder wall. The top face of the piston is textured to improve the combustion characteristics, and all kits come with rings, pins and locks.Alpha Series Rods are forged from select 4340 chromoly steel and feature a straight H-beam design, resulting in the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. Skunk2's engineers spent nearly three years developing and testing its straight H-beam rod design.

Our Sport Compact pistons are made from dedicated forgings produced in-house to give you a light weight piston with superior strength and optimal design. Being the multivalve piston technology leader, the line features specially designed valve pockets, complex dome and crown shapes, the steel nitride/napier xx rings and optimized skirt profiles. The pistons come standard with our ArmorGlide® coating material for reduced friction and noise, freeing up horsepower. Skunk2 is proud to introduce its all-new Alpha Series Connecting Rods for Honda's B18A, B18B, B20A, and B20Z engines. 4340 chromoly is one of the strongest materials available, however, not all 4340 chromoly is the same.
As such, Skunk2 relies on extensive material testing and works closely with its foundry to produce high-quality rods at an affordable price. Comprehensive heat-treating, tempering, and shot-peening processes together ensure that each Alpha Series Rod remains consistent and strong. Finally, each rod is magna-fluxed to ensure integrity and that each process has been completed thoroughly and according to Skunk2's rigid specifications. Engineers made use of FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to determine high-stress points and implemented features to reduce wear and increase strength.Skunk2's straight design distributes stress across a larger area when compared to tapered rods, providing additional support where necessary. Alpha Series Rods are manufactured from two-piece forgings, resulting in optimal grain orientation along the rod cap for increased strength. By orienting the metal's grain in the direction of stress along the rod cap, perpendicular to the stress exerted along the beam, strength is significantly increased. Skunk2's two-piece forgings provide a precision-tight fit between the rod's cap and its beam without resorting to the brittle materials required by other processes. Alpha Series Rods also feature dual oil passages at their pin ends, providing additional lubrication and cooling, which leads to an even stronger, more durable rod. Unlike other designs, Skunk2's carefully positioned, offset oil passages help deliver lubrication around the entire wrist pin, during each phase of the engine cycle.
Connecting rod bolts endure more stress than any other engine fastener. Each Alpha Series Rod features high-quality, Skunk2-branded, 3/8-inch ARP2000 bolts. ARP2000 rod bolts are forged, heat-treated, precision-machined, and capable of clamping loads as high as 220,000 psi. Precision-machined, bronze wrist pin bushings are also fitted to each Alpha Series Rod for increased wear resistance, and are compatible with most aftermarket pistons without additional machining.
Not all forged H-beam rods are the same. Please message us for a Return Authorization Number before sending anything back to avoid processing delays.
