LN Engineering is proud to offer Nickies™, the ultimate cylinders for your powerful & reliable aircooled engine.
It is not always that you hear high performance and long life paired together, especially when referring to performance aircooled engines. It is very typical, even with high-powered cooling systems, that high-performance engines run too hot, and as you know heat kills!
Higher operating temperatures result in a thermally overloaded engine that, among other things, has cylinders that fail to seal against the head and have significantly shorter life spans versus stock displacement engines.
Displacement alone doesn't make it better, Nickies™ make it run cooler and make more power.
Our Nickies™ package is the culmination of every technological advance related to pistons and cylinders for your aircooled engine!
Nickies™ make the difference!
Our NSC-plated, CNC billet, solid aluminum Nickies™ provide:
Limited lifetime warranty on NSC-plating
Increased cooling significantly reduces head and oil temperatures
Increased strength Increased ductility Increased horsepower over cast-iron cylinders
Significantly reduced cylinder wear and increased ring life due to superior oiling (nickel silicon carbide composite coating is oleophilic i.e. oil-liking)
Matched expansion with JE Pistons Greater flexibility with custom or single replacement cylinders
Interchangeability with factory cylinders allowing use of factory tin and air deflectors
Half-mooned windage-notched skirts for increased horsepower *where applicable.
Cylinders can be re-honed or re-plated at a fraction of the original price
The largest available slip-fit and machine-in bore sizes with longevity and durability exceeding that of original equipment cylinders ARP Head Studs or equivalent head studs required
Nickies™ ruled as legal in SCCA as replacement cylinders.
