Hey guys,

I need a forged piston with a 1.33" compression height and a .927" pin. Need something with a +13 to a +20cc dish with the pin out of the oil ring, and releifs for a 2.02/1.60 valve setup

possibly something along these lines with the above mods? this was just something i found quickly

open to any manufacturer, as long as its affordable...dont want a set of 700 dollars pistons, possibly something under 600 if its doable

Cheap and custom don't go together. But like the above said check with Mark O'Neal on here.

thats what i had thought. some told me last week they had Diamond change the compression height on their pistons and enlarge the releifs to 2.09 valve on the intake for $35 dollars for the whole set! I couldnt believe it! lol

I guess its more semi custom since it wouldnt be a scratch built piston, just a modified one

i think you guys are taking this out of context...when i say cheap, i mean not overly expensive as in i dont need a 700 dollar set of pistons...im not setting records, and really i believe a set of pistons that cost that much for my setup are overkill...period.

If i can't find what i need for the price im willing to pay, i will go to a shelf rotating assembly...these pistons are for a rotating assembly im wanting to peice together myself

its cool to come up with something yourself,,,,.......BUT one thing i learned a long time ago. THE easiest way to go fast, is to COPY a proven combination.
That said, Tell Ryan J on Moparts what your looking to do and listen to the man !!!

to some people, maybe...i think ALOT of things in this hobby are way over priced and unrealistic...thats just me....pistons that arent much more than off the shelf but over 700 bucks- to me thats wild

Your right Tony, it is definitely easier to go with what is proven...but i enjoy the challenge...like i said though, if this is too much for me, im going to go with a shelf kit from Scat...im planning a rotating assembly right now over the new BPE 4.125" crank advertised on moparts, gonna see if its right for me
