  • Terry McMillen Terry McMillen I wouldn't use any other connecting rod on my Top Fuel Dragster but a Carrillo. I couldn't ask for anything more from a rod. They are the most reliable rods that we've ever found to withstand the punishment of a nitro burning 10,000 horsepower car. There's no reason to race with anything but Carrillo. Terry McMillen

  • Rolando Blanco & Allan Jimenez Rolando Blanco & Allan Jimenez CP-Carrillo have been part of our racing program since 2009. They helped us achieve many goals in competing in the very competitive class called Sport Front Wheel Drive (SFWD). In 2010, we were the first car to run an 8 second pass in the SFWD class. In 2013, we were the first car in the SFWD class to break the 180mph barrier. We also have many wins under our belt and we couldn't have done it without CP Pistons and Carrillo Rods. CP-Carrillo is the only name we trust! Rolando Blanco & Allan Jimenez

  • Quentin Feast Quentin Feast Been using the CP-Carrillo Bullet Piston for over a year now in my twin turbo 403 ci LS with E85. These 14cc dish pistons gave me a static compression ratio of 9.9 to 1 and at 20 psi of boost they have not let me down. With regular street driving and over 50 passes down the quarter mile at 7000 rpm in a year of use we pulled the engine down to inspect. The pistons themselves had held up very well. Virtually un-marked with no signs of detonation in the ring lands, on the crown or the skirts. The skirts measured up fine too with only minor marks from going past the bottom of the bore. The wrist pins supplied were flexing a little as there was slight bell mouthing in the piston and small end of the rod so we upgraded these from 180th to 240th. These have been back in the car now for 6 months and another 30 passes no problem. Thanks to CP-Carrillo Bullet Pistons for helping my 3400lb street car run 8.34 and 169mph.

  • Nick Ferri Nick Ferri n 2008, while preparing a new Pro Stock engine program for Mike Edwards, I decided to step out of the box, and approached CP-Carrillo about piston & rods for our 500" engines.., we won the 2009 Pro Stock Championship together. We did it again in 2014, with Erica Enders/Team Elite. Before CP-Carrillo, I used to have two guys spend two days detailing & hand finishing pistons before we could run them in our engines.., now we can run our CP's right out of the box, they are that good. I'm still out of the box, and in the winner’s circle, and I'm still running CP pistons & Carrillo rods. Nick Ferri
