any idea who makes an affordable forged piston , i say affordable i dont need cp or diamond ect ......just putting together an engine to aim for 10.00 index class while i finish the big motor

For that compression ratio, you need a dome top piston for your combo. If you don't want to spend the money on the dome tops that Carl sells, the locate some american-made L2443s. They are usually worth the asking price considering the cost of state-of-the-art pistons these days, and they are rugged and proven. Just don't run them lean because there is a thin ring land area adjacent to the intake valve. Maintain a good A/F ratio and you'll be fine.
