Piston Machining Service for VAG 1.6 & 2.0 16v TDI PD, PPD & Common Rail Pistons
Darkside Developments are able to custom machine your pistons to allow for higher lift cams and lowered compression. Lowered compression is vital if you are running significant amounts of Nitrous.
For daily cars the compression is only lowered slightly to maintain cold starting but even with drag specifications cold starting is still acceptable if extended glow times are added.
With lower compression we do not have the same issues with head lifting or piston bowl rim melting
