Trying to see if there is enough interest to run another batch.
Why get a set?
1. No balance required
2. Stock bore replacements
3 Use stock factory rings
4. Use stock rods
5. Forged 4032 material piston and new high strength pins
6. Coated ring lands
7. Coated skirts
8. Stop ring moved down for added strength
9. Additional cross section added to ring land between first and second
compression ring for added strength
10. Increase volume of accumulator groove between first and second ring for added strength ( reduce pressure spikes that cause land failures)
11. Addition of valve reliefs to accommodate larger cam profiles .080int and .050exh
Cost of comparable piston with coatings $924.00 MSRP our price $659.00+SH

Tranmission valve body, torque converters. and blue top installs.
contact me for all your upgrading needs.
How big of a cam can you go using these pistons?
PPP stage 2 Heads, Super Spartan Max Cam, Inertia Ported/Coated Intake, Zoomer's, Kooks, no cat's, Jet 180 t-stat, BT catch can.
More to come
bigger then the srt max cam,. which is about the biggest without the use of valve reliefs,
other then the pistons to go with a bigger cam you need to swap the springs to something that can handle more lift/compression. but since you have to remove the heads anyways to install these pistons thats not a big deal.
My springs are already upgraded. I love my cam, but I would love to go bigger!
That's a question for dave an MM. However I think u might be at the threshold as on a stock bottum end it will handle about 9. Where the weakest point in the piston . So u might get away with that. However u would have to think about longevity. With the rod crank and pistons take it probably but your other components etc most likely won't. Ie main bolts and stuff like that . However I dunno if its possible but maybe talk to dave to see if the mains can be swapped to arps. Without additional work. That way it might handle even more.
