COMPRESSION RATIO

JE piston sets for the VW 3.2L VR6 engines are offered in various compression ratios. Lower compression pistons (8.5:1) are typically used on boosted engines, resulting in less chance of knock and cylinder detonation than higher compression ratio pistons. Lower compression will sacrifice out of boost power, spool time, and power/torque per pound of boost. Choose your compression ratio accordingly. For naturally aspirated engine builds we recommend using a higher compression ratio piston (11.5:1). Speak with your engine tuner about the fuel and boost pressures you will be using to determine the best compression for your engine.

 

 

BORE SIZE

JE offers your choice of bore size to suit your build. You have the option of stock (84mm) bore sizing, +.5mm overbore sizing (84.5mm) or +1mm (85mm) oversized bores. Overbore pistons require additional machine work including a cylinder bore and hone, this work must be performed by a machine shop. For most performance engine builds, we recommend overboring the engine block when installing aftermarket pistons. This additional work ensures a proper piston to wall clearance and in most cases results in stronger compression, longer piston life, increased ring life, and quieter piston operation.

 

 

OPTIONAL PISTON UPGRADES

JE Tuff Skirt coating upgrade 

JE's race bred Tuff Skirt coating is self lubricating and provides improved anti-friction and reduced wear. This coating is applied to the piston skirt designed to increase piston life and withstand many different types of endurance racing. Coating upgrades are non-stock and manufactured by order, all coatings have a 2-3 week lead time. 

 

JE thermal barrier crown coating upgrade

The thermal barrier crown coating is applied to the piston dome, designed to reflect heat into the combustion chamber.  This increases exhaust gas velocity, greatly improves scavenging potential, and extends piston life by decreasing the rate of thermal transfer. Coating upgrades are non-stock and manufactured by order, all coatings have a 2-3 week lead time. 

 

 

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Forged from 2618 T6 aluminum

Engineered for extreme operating environments found in professional motorsport competition, JE manufactures this light yet strong piston from high tensile strength 2618 T6 aluminum. This high performance alloy is suited for use with high compression ratios, high boost levels, and high octane useage tolerating acceleration forces of more than 8000 G's and directional changes exceeding 200 times a second, while minimizing weight. This reliable forging is the ultra-high performance choice when building a competition or very high powered boosted engine exceeding street power levels.

 

Optimized dish & dome design

The piston dish and dome have been individually designed to the combustion chamber of each individual application. Special care has been taken to provide properly placed valve reliefs as needed and feature smooth flowing radii across the surface for excellent flame travel. Designed and verified in JE's dedicated Critical Manufacturing Cell, providing reliable compression ratios and combustion characteristics.

 

JE Pro Seal piston rings

Every JE piston set includes a complete set of performance matching JE Pro Seal Piston Rings. JE Pro Seal rings are the result of over 60 years of experience in manufacturing racing piston technology such as NASCAR, ALMS, NHRA, and AMA. Pro Seal Ring features barrel-faced top rings made with premium ductile iron, plasma-moly inlays on the ring face combining nickel, chrome, and other trace elements. The second ring sets are taper-faced with a reverse torsional design and finished with a phosphate coating. These high-technology designs reduce friction, lower wear, improve ring seal, and extending ring life.

 

World class manufacturing and quality control

Meeting the extreme demands of today's ultra-performing race teams, JE Pistons are engineered, manufactured, and verified using during a Critical Process Program unique to JE. All critical surfaces are machined in a dedicated manufacturing cell resulting in tighter tolerances on 14 critical areas. 23-point quality inspection in an environmentally controlled lab, maintained at a constant 68 degrees with 40% relative humidity. This ensures consistent and exact measurements and guarantees dimensional conformity. Each piston is serialized and tracked, you can rest assured your piston set is ready to use right out of the box!  

 

JE wrist pins

All JE piston sets offered by IE include the wire locks and ship standard with straight wall carbon steel wrist pins. The included wrist pin is recommended for performance engines not exceeding 125HP per cylinder.

Excellent product
For myself the main reason to upgrade to the use of the newer TSI coil packs was to see if the newer coil packs would indeed last longer and be more reliable than the stock 1.8T counter parts. However the ability to open up the spark plug gap has smoothed out idle quite dramatically. You're not going to gain significant horsepower by swapping coil packs, but what I believe you will gain is a more reliable coil pack that is actually cheaper than the stock 1.8T units and if you are using these coil packs with a modified engine then I'm sure the wider gap and improved efficiency of the burn inside the cylinders will be a big benefit. The fit of the coil pack adapters could not be any better. Very easy install. And with the IE red anodized finish and the red TSI coil packs you get a little more flash under the hood too.

Great upgrade!
Installed these on my B6 A4 1.8T, and installed the 2.0 TFSI coils. Overall, it's a solid upgrade - the coils fit very well and are snug in the spark plug hole and will not pop up or shift. A much better alternative to shifting the rubber O ring down on the new coils. Thanks IE!
