What's in a name?
If the name is ARIAS, it is over thirty-six years of forged piston innovation that has set the standard for piston performance. Founded in the workshop and on the racetrack by Nick Arias Jr. in 1969, ARIAS PISTONS blends its unique experience, state-of-the-art equipment, engineering excellence and dedicated team to produce pistons that have forged a reputation for power!
In addition to decades of manufacturing experience and the knowledge gleaned from powering countless champions, the ARIAS team has designed, manufactured and built our own engines, crewed and raced our own vehicles, and gathered priceless information from our own research, development and testing. The proprietary knowledge derived from this focus on R&D is passed on to our customers in every one of our products. With ARIAS, you are benefiting from 60-plus years of proprietary internal-combustion engine experience.*
In a world of hostile takeovers and faceless corporate buyouts, it's reassuring to know you're doing business with a company that flourishes under its original management - one that has endured the test of time. The fact is: anyone can acquire the machinery and raw materials to make and sell pistons. However, not everyone can supply the technical and real-world experience to make those pistons function properly - ARIAS can! The promise we make to you is that we will continue to work as hard today as we did the day the company was founded to produce state-of-the-art pistons that are competitively priced.
* Unlike the extravagant claims made by some piston manufacturers regarding their industry experience that is based on the combined years of their company's partners, this is our Founder's - Nick Arias Jr. - individual experience.
Today, ARIAS maintains an
unmatched advantage in the import and domestic compact market. Over three
decades of research and development have led to the ARIAS Sport
