Crankshaft PCE forged standard weight crankshafts are designed for street or race engines with substantially increased horsepower. PCE crankshafts are precision-ground, heat-treated, shot-peened, inspected, and micro-polished for superior tolerance control. PCE crankshafts are also nitride-hardened for superior wear resistance, have straight-shot and chamfered oil holes, and feature lightening holes in all rod throws. These crankshafts also have a large radius on all journals for improved strength and wear resistance.
Connecting Rods PCE H-beam connecting rods are one of the strongest connecting rods available. PCE H-beam connecting rods are perfect for supercharged and nitrous applications. These rods incorporate a special doweled cap for specific cap-to-rod alignment and are profiled with extra clearance for stroker applications.
PCE H-Beam Street / Strip connecting rods are manufactured from aircraft quality 4340 chromoly steel. The rods are x-rayed and ultrasonically tested with all surfaces shot peened and stress relieved.
Pistons PCE Forged pistons are made from 4032 aluminum alloy for quieter operation and reduced piston to wall clearance. Up to 20% lighter than traditional forged pistons that eliminate harmful stress concentrations for superior strength. Specifically designed for naturally aspirated or moderate nitrous applications.
In 1979, the company was founded with Pete's Performance, which was a small speed workshop. It began by building engines for customers as a hobby, and it has now grown to include selling, assembling, manufacturing and racing high performance engine parts. Over the years, the company has grown into a worldwide high performance powerhouse. Growing from a one-man bricks-and-mortar business; to now a supply chain in which entails more than 400+ people all across the world. Today, Pete's Performance has evolved into the internationally known Speedmaster: which has distribution centres and offices is Sydney, Los Angeles and Shanghai.
Founded in Sydney Australia with one CNC Machine increasing to sixty 5-Axis CNC machines before being acquired in 2013. The Company's main focus has always been "Speed to Market", launching 1,200+ new products each year. Needing just one month to develop a new product and get it on to the shelf, compared to the six-month industry average.
