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 engines.
Our Nickies™ package is the culmination of every technological advance related to pistons and cylinders for your aircooled engine! Nickies™ make the difference!
♦ More surface area and twice the thermal conductivity of factory cast aluminum cylinders
♦ At least 50% greater tensile and ultimate yield strength than factory aluminum cylinders
♦ Stronger and more ductile than any cast cylinder
♦ Increased strength and ductility allow for larger bore sizes and larger slip-fit cylinders than previously possible - up to 106 mm
♦ Most cylinders come half-mooned for improved crankcase windage, which is typically good for 8-10hp over non-mooned cylinders
♦ Applications fitting 356®, 912®, 914®, 911® through 1998 SCCA Legal
