It's that time again, when all of the performance racing industry gathers in Indianapolis to talk tech, racing, and parts. Stop by the Wiseco booth (#837) to see all our new products and somre seriously cool racecars!When the weather turns cold and the last checkered flage of the season is thrown, it’s time for the annual Performance Racing Industry show. Titans of racing and manufacturing gather in the hallowed city of Indianapolis to discuss speed secrets, technology, and, of course, next year’s racing plans. Wiseco is here, as always, and right in the center of the action at booth 837. While there are tons of new products to showcase, such as fresh GM LT piston applications and the ultra-affordable Pro Tru Street line, the booth stars are the cars, engines, and motorcyles sporting track tested Wiseco pistons.
The turbocharged GT350 Mustang of Paul Faessler delivers 900 ponies to the rear tires, all of which have earned him and driver, son Brian Faessler, much success in NASA time trials and several other racing series. The car holds 8 track records and has won 13 of the last 14 races it entered. Under the hood beats a boss 5.0L–based Coyote engine with a set of custom, Wiseco pistons and BoostLine connecting rods. Work is already under way for an even more-potent 5.2L-based engine.
This Honda K24-series engine, built by the talented tuners at 4piston racing, is a force to be reckoned with. Equipped with a Precision 7285 turbo and CNC-ported cylinder head, the engine can deliver over 1,200 horsepower on race gas at 50psi of boost pressure and 600 horsepower on 93-octane pump fuel. A set of custom, Wiseco flat-top pistons and BoostLine rods handle the massive, 300 horsepower-per-cylinder required by this high-strung Honda. This engine is designed for performance street cars and weekend racers and has been used in road racing, time attack, hill climb, and many other performance applications
For those interested in two-wheel’d activities, there’s the drag bike of Kenneth Selner, a 2007 ZX14 that has made over 3,500 passes on shelf-stock Wiseco 84mm pistons. Assisted by a large shot of nitrous, the bike is a solid 8-second performer in the quarter mile.
