    Re: High performance piston options for the O-200

    Well they are similar to a hotrod car rod, I was thinking that they could be c-n-c machined to reduce weight. Horizontally opposed engines are inherently balanced, with some light weight pistons? who knows what the potential for a hotrod motor..oh and the stroke is the same for both engines...

    So I have been doing some research, I found another continental heavy duty rod that is the same dimensions as an O-200 connecting rod but it weighs about 140 grams more than the stock rod, way more stout...Tim

    Per the TCDS

    The Model O-200-D is similar to the O-200-A except for special crankshaft flange, overall engine weight reduction, oil sump assembly, and higher compression pistons. The O-200-D does not have provisions for a vacuum pump or the diaphragm fuel pump The Model O-200-X is similar to the O-200-D except for engine dataplate identification.
