Cylinder Machining and Cylinder Plating Services

Revolution Performance Cylinder Services

Modern engine designs use very light aluminum cylinders. The aluminum base metal is very soft and would wear out almost instantly without a very special protective barrier. Revolution Performance utilizes Millennium Technologies Nickel Silicon Carbide (NSC) cylinder plating process which forms an extremely hard, extremely durable barrier with less friction, improved heat transfer, less weight, and ultimately more horsepower.

Millennium Technologies specializes in Nickel Silicone Carbide (NSC) plating of aluminum cylinders, but we still offer a wide variety of services for cast iron cylinders. The options depending on damage to bore are:

Overbore and Hone to Next Piston Size

Most cost effective and common repair. Most engines have multiple oversize pistons available through OEM and aftermarket vendors. Required piston size would be dependent on the severity of damage to the bore.

NSC Plate Cast Iron Bore

There are two reasons to plate a cast iron bore: improve the performance or save a cylinder past its service life. We can save that cast iron cylinder when over size pistons are no longer available or the cylinder is larger than the biggest over size piston. We typically can put back at least .020 and sometimes more. Contact us for our restoration services. For the performance minded, plating a cast iron bore will improve wear resistance and lower the coefficient of friction.

Purchase and Install a New Cast Iron Sleeve

We have vendors that can supply us sleeves for most common 4 stroke engines. We can machine out the existing sleeve and size cylinder for the replacement sleeve. Then install the sleeve and hone to the finish size.
