JE Forged LTG Pistons

We have two versions of the LTG pistons available to fit your needs.

JE Pistons for LTG 2.0

This is JE's off the shelf base LTG piston. This option is recommended for those looking for a economic option. These are setup for the stock bore block. We do NOT recommend sleeving the block. These pistons will work with the stock rods. They will work in all 2.0 liter LTG engines, this includes Regal, CTS, ATS, Camaro, and more.

Other Features:

  • Tool steel nitrided rings with a napier second ring
  • Upgraded forging capable of living at 1000+hp. The technology of this forging comes from existing Honda designs that make 1000+hp and survive!
  • Offset pin .030" so you can run a tighter piston to wall clearance for a quieter piston.
  • Made from 2618 forging.

"ZZP" JE Forged LTG Pistons: This is our specific "ZZP" version of the LTG piston. This option is recommended if you are looking for optimal performance in your vehicle. We sent in an LTG head to JE so they could digitize the piston top design. It is an asymmetric design, so the skirt has more surface area on the thrust side rather than on the non-thrust side. This will extend the life of the piston without adding extra weight. We also opted for an upgraded '93 series wrist pin and wire locks instead of C clips. This pistons has an increased compression height of .003". These also come with skirt coating for less resistance, resulting in more power and a longer life for the piston. These are set up of the stock bore block. We do NOT recommend sleeving the block. These pistons will work with the stock rods.

Other Features:

  • Tool steel nitrided rings with a napier second ring
  • Upgraded forging capable of living at 1000+hp. The technology of the forging comes from existing Honda designs that make 1000+hp and survive!
  • Offset pin .030" so you can run a tighter piston to wall clearance for a quieter piston
  • Made from 2618 forging 

3/25/21 Update: We now offer our ZZPerformance pistons in a .002" oversized version. This is for those who need to clean up the block more than your usual quick hone. The LTG has extremely thin cylinder walls/liners so we do not recommend going more than .002" (.05mm) over stock.

    Forged LTG Pistons

    The pistons are great so far, I haven't had much time with them yet but they were exact fit for the stock bore. Stock pistons in these cars are **** so hopefully these hold up!

    Amazing!

    Wonderful quality, fits perfect and, after double checking of course, all rings were already gapped perfectly! Just finished breaking in with the Comp Cams break in oil also from them, car runs like a dream!

    Very satisfied!!

    Shipping was fast and on time. Had the typical LTG stock piston failure in my 2013 Malibu 2.0. Had the dealership install these as direct factory replacements. The block didn’t need to be bored out, compression was the same, attached to stock rods as advertised. Getting back full compression in all cylinders really woke my car back up. Now I have the ability to take it farther with performance when it gets tuned because I don’t have to worry about weak factory pistons.

    Right Fit Right Price!!

    Hands down a must have if you are upgrading your LTG 2.0. I work for GM and can tell piston failures are a little too common for this engine (any year). If you want long term reliability then this is something i highly suggest. The fit and function is spot on and had no issues with installation. I have been waiting to review this for the simple fact that I do believe in giving factual on long term results. I did purchase the ZZ Performance pistons and 10k miles later no problems. I have stage 1 kit, E85 sensor, ZZP Rods, ZZP pistons and modified exhaust. (ZZP Stickers on the doors, 15 extra HP)
