LN Engineering is proud to offer our Nickies™, the ultimate cylinders for your powerful & reliable aircooled engine.
It is not always that you hear high performance and long life paired together, especially when referring to performance aircooled engines. It is very typical, even with high-powered cooling systems, that high-performance engines run too hot, and as you know heat kills! Higher operating temperatures result in a thermally overloaded engine that, among other things, has cylinders that fail to seal against the head and have significantly shorter life spans versus stock engines.
Nickies™ make the difference!
Our NSC-plated, CNC billet, solid aluminum Nickies™ provide:
Our Nickies™ package is the culmination of every technological advance related to pistons and cylinders for your aircooled engine!

Call for special discounted pricing only valid with purchase of Nickies™ cylinders or other qualifying cylinder purchase or service.
Our custom forged pistons are the best of their kind. They feature the low-friction slipper skirts, low weight, balancing within 1/2 a gram, and are manufactured from the superior 2618-aluminum forged alloy material when specified for use with our Nickies™ cylinders. Our pistons are designed to maintain optimal deck height for maximum quench.
The “Ultra-quench” dish shape design as shown above and to the left mimics the shape of the combustion chamber and is sized to allow the compression ratio you want while maintaining optimal .040-.060” deck height for maximum quench, as with all our pistons.
This results in a faster burn for better thermal efficiency, leading to better gas mileage, lower potential for detonation, and best of all, more power, and are exclusive to LN, available for the VW Type 1 and Type4.
Good quench allows for faster burn and better thermal efficiency, leading to better gas mileage, lower potential for detonation, and more power.
We can supply pistons to meet your needs. Whatever the case, here’s the bottom line: we work with you to provide ideal pistons and cylinders for your application, period.
