Properly assembling your pistons before installation is critical to the life of your engine. If you don’t get it right, the results can be catastrophic.
Kevin Frische has been doing this work a long time. In fact, he taught performance engine building at UNOH for several years. In this video, Kevin shows us how he assembles pistons in a performance application like #DarkMatterPikachu.
