I,ve seen a setup on a NASCAR motor.Squirters are directed at the underside of the piston to cool it and help longevity in long distance races.Would have to be overkill on anything but an endurance type of engine that is turning excessive rpm for long durations.

David Vizard in one of his books details the modification to a small block chevy motor. Basically it was drilling small hole from journal through block into the lower cylinder. A high volume pump was used to overcome the additional oil flow.

Out of interest many diesels have oil squirters to cool the piston.

Re: piston oil squirters

I have Oliver rods they feed oil to gudgeon pins,It supplies plenty of oil up there..Full floating too...Modern pistons can run at tight clearances these days, even with turbo'd engines....Like http://www.cppistons.com/

Re: piston oil squirters

A thread in the Small block sesction of the Hardcore50 site covered these things. Might be worth a read.

Piston oil squirter discussion

That forum is a good read if you're really interested in learning from actual racers and the guys that develop racing engines.
