I would definitely use lateral gas ports, in conjunction with the .9mm ring pack mentioned earlier by Chris and Bob.Which would you recommend for a carbureted street strip car?
Were you serious about a mixture of both?
diamond may have a shelf piston for that application.
Just make sure you can get rings for your bore.
- That'd be nice. I have diamond flat tops now, seem like a good piston and took some abuse from being lean, and likely some detonation also. Still have to get my finished bore size figured out but last time they made them to fit my bore of 4.034
That's how I'm understanding it. Find the best piston/ring pack that I can afford for my application and make my bore to suit. I'm fairly limited on a stock type block though. But thanks, I'll do the research on the pistons and rings before I decide on bore size.Just make sure you can get rings for your bore.
