Piston choices?

Post  ifucan on September 28th 2015, 9:10 pm

Hey guys. Contemplating putting together a shortblock and have stock length eagle h beams. I have a 460 crank and a 429. I know piston availability for the 460 is better but is there a floating pin (1.040), forged dish (say around 20cc) piston for the 429 out there? I'd really like to run the smaller cubes as it will have a turbo on it and no need (actually may be detrimental to run the extra cubes due to backpressure).

Thanks Derrick

Hard anodizing ( the green coating) is becoming popular on non nitro applications ( where it is common). Steve Morris in Mi pioneered its use in gas burning engines. Not for everybody though.
