Hey Guys and Gals,

Just wanted to let you know that we finally got our first batch of pistons and rods in for the Ecoboost 2.0L Engine!!! These will work in your Focus ST or Fusion and are a direct replacement for the OEM pistons and rods. We typically order these in very small batches as motors get built so if you would like to purchase a set there is a 3-4 week lead time associated with them. You cant get these anywhere else but through us and we will be running some specials over the upcoming holidays so please contact us for details! We also had custom head/main studs made along with rod/main bearings so that you can put together a complete forged motor. If you have any questions feel free to post up and we will do our best to answer them.

Piston Specs:
- 9.3:1 Compression Ratio (11.0:1 will be available soon)
- Made of 2618 Forged alloy material
- 87.5mm or 88.0mm Bores Available

Rod Specs:
- H-Beam Design
- Forged from 4340 Billet Steel
- Heat treated to increase tensile strength and then shot peened to increase fatigue life
- Comes with ARP2000 rod bolts

They are available from our website here:

I smell an engine teardown in my near future. Any ballpark estimate for the availability of the 11:1?

I'm new to all this stuff, how much would a tear down and install for these cost?

Great news guys. Are these slightly heavier than our stock rods? Not that it matters much with our relatively low rpm app, but just curious. JP

They should be done in about 4-6 weeks

Please send us a PM if your interested in motor build pricing. It will be very similar to what we do for the Mazda's

I will weigh both rods and let you know.

So forgive my ignorance but why would you want such high compression in a turboed car? While you pick up some bottom isn't the overall number going to suffer at the top? And can we ask who the pistons are made by?
Higher compression = more power but at the expense of increased chance of detonation. With so many people running meth and E85, you dont really have to worry about detonation (with a good tune of course) and you can reap all the benefits of the higher compression. Our pistons are made by Wiseco right now but we will also be introducing Mahle Motorsports as one of our pistons suppliers very soon.

has anyone purchased and installed these yet? Any feed back at all?
We have sold one set to a customer overseas but seeing as how they are an identical design to the stock pistons, there should be no driveability changes just tons of room for more power =D. We have a build currently in house that will be getting this as well.

What I want to see is a new higher flowing "headifold" so that we can really take advantage of these things.

Here are the weights we recorded. Turns out they are lighter then stock :RockOn:

Will these pistons work on stock rods?
yes they will but we would not recommend using stock rods due to not knowing their strength. The last thing you want to do is blow a motor your just spend 3k+ building because you cheaped out on rods.

I believe the factory rods are forged also.
Yes, of course you're right Fred. Brain Fart. The H-Beam should be stronger, and that usually means a slight weight penalty that can be a significant issue with high revving motors. The fact that neither is the case with our motor is good news. Thanks for correcting the record. JP
