The starting materials consisted of [Mg.sub.67][Zn.sub.30][Y.sub.3] quasicrystal alloy (with a chemical composition of Zn (50.86 wt%), Y (7.02 wt%), and Mg balance) and hypereutectic Al-17.5Si alloy (with a chemical composition of Si (17.5 wt%) and Al balance).
The connecting rods are forged steel: "Again, because of the loads." The pistons are made with a hypereutectic alloy and designed with a thick crown area and use a special ring pack so that the boost pressure and heat generated by the turbo system can be handled.
The alloy is hypereutectic and based on nano-structural aluminum.
