Useless to most people Friday information

Two types of CaymanS pistons. One weighs 15grams less than the other

Guess which one will go into this SCCA competition engine?

They are all cast.. "wink wink"

I'm not of fan of having my customers get their pants pulled down when somebody protests our cars, so we have to stay cast. I do use forged in other engines when its called for

When needed, I use CP (one large company named "Pankl" owns JE/CP/Carrillo)

Pankl supplies Porsche Motorsport with their Ti rods, pistons,cranks.

We used JE way back.
