Hello all,
I have been talking to Wiseco so get some 74.5mm or 75mm 12:1 pistons made up.
They are a custom order. One set with rings etc cost $725CAD tax included.
If I get another person on board to make another set the cost goes down 10% to $650CAD
And more people would drive the price down

So would anyone be interested in doing a little group buy?

Thanks

Levon

If you're on GMF then it would be worth talking to GeoGlenn, he was asking about 75mm slugs for a gt engine he's building.

Unless you really need Wiseco you can get 12.5:1 from Suzukird. for about $650.

Levon, I would be interested in a set if we can get more guys on board to get the price lower! Been looking at buying a set from www.importperformanceparts.net already but they only offer up to 11:1 comp ratio!

Bump
I may have a friend order these through his business, which is extra discount.
If I get a couple more guys we could have forged quality pistons in the 500's
Something to think about for building your engine in the off season

Thanks
Levon

I would be interested in a lower compression ratio set.

Sorry this idea didn't pan out, but mike(3tech/suprf1y) and I are developing our own oversized pistons, if that would interest you, there's a thread on here.
