    JE Pistons

    I just got my pistons in the other day and want to see who uses JE and if you have anything good or bad to say about them. They sure look like they are first class. I went with a nitrous piston. Thanks

    I had some in a SBC I used to have, top notch stuff.

    Question: Aren't SRP and JE one in the same company?
    I've heard they were / just wondering > Cp

    Yes but The JE's are made of a better grade Aluminum than the SRP's. At least that's my understanding.

    SRP's are 4032 I think is the alloy and JE's are 2618. Different coefficient of expansion and different strength qualities.

    srp pistons are 4032 grade aluminum, the je pistons are available with the much desired(and the ones i have in a nitrous application)2618 for harsher environments with more cylinder pressure,nitrous blower and turbo stuff

    i have them and no probs sofar,i got them through flatlanderracing.com(if memory serves me correctly)motor is a dart 572.

    srp pistons are not ment to be used with much over 200 horsey power hit of nitrous.

    I posted last nite but removed the post, JE is a great piston, SRP's are soso, and all are overpriced. I've been useing Probe for the last couple yrs. They are every bit as good as JE and a ton better than the SRP pistons, and 30% cheaper than JE.
