  Wiseco precision forged clutch components have greater strength due to "feature aligned grain flow." Compared to castings or products machined from billet, Wiseco forged clutch components can be lighter and still have increased mechanical properties resulting in higher strength, ductility, and resistance to impact and fatigue.
Specifically designed to capitalize on detailed features that can only be produced by the precision forging process.
Hard anodized and Teflon coated for a long life of smooth clutch operation through the elimination of wear on contact surfaces.
Rotational mass is minimized for reduced assembly weight and maximum engine acceleration.
Forged from lightweight, high-strength, certified, aerospace grade, aluminum alloy.
Wiseco's CNC machining process produces each clutch component dimensionally the same as the next.

Technical Corner
In each newsletter, we will be answering commonly asked technical questions that come up during a rebuild.  
Q: Once the piston physically fits in my engine, what factors determine the piston I choose?
A: The most important issue is to have a piston that is built for the right application. Material and thickness are the major factors. Street and drag race applications are fairly easy on pistons if ignition and fuel curves are correct. Circle track and road-race pistons see much on-off throttle usage and see more laps as well. Blower and Marine usage are equally as tough as marine engines can be under extreme load for extended periods. Finally nitrous applications are about the toughest environment a piston will ever see.
Wiseco makes super-light pistons for those people that are out to set records and are willing to check and replace pistons on a regular basis if needed. Wiseco's standard weight pistons are intended for use in endurance and other more abusive environments. If a blower or 300 horsepower of nitrous is to be used, please call Wiseco technical for specific recommendations. Always-Always use a timing control computer and have an adequate fuel supply when using Nitrous systems.
