About Us

Everyone in this industry is trying to do it all...trying to be an expert at everything and that is why you see shops selling everything from front ends, suspension, turbos, and then claiming to be expert engine builders all at the same time. We don't feel that one person can know everything about everything no matter how brilliant, so we have stuck to what we know...Cylinder Heads and Race Engine Development. My dad told me to pick one thing you are good at, and do it better than anyone else. We eat, sleep, and breathe Cylinder Heads and day after day continue to push for new developments. There is no rest for the wicked.

Josh Klein and Luke Wilson started 4 Piston 20 years ago with a dream of developing world class racing engines.  Like all things great, it was just a small seed planted....a dream that started in the garage at home.  Growing up in Indy only blocks from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Indianapolis Raceway Park didn't leave us many choices for something to be passionate about. Tuesday nights were spent at IRP on the drag strip, Thursday Night Thunder was sprint car night, and of course we were tortured as we sat in our grade school classrooms listening to the Indy Cars circle IMS for the entire month of May.

4 Piston Racing has grown tremendously over the past few years and we have been focusing more and more on our craft of engine development. We pride ourselves in putting racers at the top of their classes, and doing it with reliable and meticulously assembled racing engines. Every move is calculated, every piece is there for a reason.  All of our cylinder heads, engine development, and engine dyno testing is done in-house.

We take great pride in taking care of the customer, and making sure that you are successful in your racing endeavors.  We want you to hold the world record in your class, and we have helped to propel many racers to that exact achievement.  Our heads are precision machined on state-of-the-art 5-axis CNC equipment, using only the best tooling and equipment.  Our racing engines are simply a cut above the competition with regards to cleanliness, longevity, and power output.  Seeing is believing....when you first lay eyes on your 4P cylinder head or racing engine, it will bring a smile to your face.  You will have known then that every dollar you spent was well spent, and the dyno and track experience that comes after is the icing on the cake.
