Piston Set, WBC Forged - Spitfire 1500 & MG Midget 1500

WBC Spitfire Forged Piston Set with Thermal & Skirt Coating; WBC Steel Con Rod

The primary difference between the two is the crown thickness, the N/A unit having a crown 0.200” thick and the forced induction unit having a crown 0.240” thick.  All forged pistons have the following features:

  • Superior near-net shape, tight grain aluminum forgings
  • Piston-to-Bore clearances similar to that of regular cast aluminum pistons
  • Premium piston rings, 0.812” diameter wrist pins and wire lock pin retainers included.
  • Fully balanced out of the box.  Balance across set is better than +/- 1g.
  • Ultra flat, highly finished piston ring grooves
  • Exceptional manufacturing tolerances for all diameters and compression height
  • Radial Anti-Detonation Grooves (above 1st ring)
  • Pressure Accumulator Groove (between 1st & 2nd ring)
  • Pressure fed oiling of the wrist pin
  • All forged pistons available with the latest in anti-friction & ceramic heat barrier coatings.
  • Two choices of wrist pins, the standard item weighs 95g and the premium pin weighs 83g

Choosing your piston:
0.200" Crown
You should choose this piston if your engine is naturally aspirated or you don’t plan to run a high boost forced induction setup (10psi max).  13 grams less piston mass than 0.240” crown.
0.240" Crown
You should choose this piston if you’re running a high boost forced induction setup (up to 18psi).  This is also the piston to choose if you’re concerned about any detonation occurring, as the thicker crown will prove more durable.
