Designed specifically for direct injection petrol engines, the Goetze LKZ piston ring features an innovative “stepped” surface and taper on the contacting edge.
How the Goetze LKZ piston ring design work
The innovative design feature of LKZ rings applies less pressure to cylinder walls on the upstroke, thus reducing frictional losses. At the same time, more oil is returned to the pan instead of entering the combustion chamber which reduces oil consumption.
Reinforced with surface treatments
LKZ rings are available with a choice of surface treatments to resist wear. The treatments include chrome, Chrome Ceramic Coating (CKS) and Goetze Diamond Coating (GDC).
These coatings protect the periphery of the ring from scuffing. This minimises wear and ensures the ring works properly throughout the engine’s lifespan.
Easy installation the LKZ way
LKZ piston rings installs easily during an engine rebuild without the need for extra tools or labour.
LKZ rings and other Goetze parts are available from FPS via same/next-day delivery. The range is catalogued on the F:Drive and MAM Autocat. For more information, please speak to your local FPS representative.
