Teamswift,
I have been offering high compression pistons for 4cyl G series engines for well over a year now. I offer them because there isn't an affordable product available for us naturally aspirated enthusiasts. My goal is to keep it affordable. When I set out, my price was $300CAD, and the Canadian dollar was great. The Canadian dollar has fallen considerably, and I pay USD for my material, so it is no longer economical for me to offer the price in CAD, as it fluctuates so much and isn't going to come close to USD any time soon. So to keep everything affordable I have come up with a new price offered as a group buy. To keep it cheap I have determined $300USD plus shipping to be the price as a group buy. Custom one offs will be more.

Below is the link to the thread all about the specs and development of this product.

Regards,

Levon

Just an FYI, Levon has too much on his plate right now, so I will be taking over the sale of these Pistons.

I will require about a month of lead time, and need a minimum of 3 orders to make it worthwhile. Compression ratios from 11-1 up to about 13(+)-1 are available. Each set includes four Pistons, rings, pins and Teflon buttons in place of the retaining clips. Shipping within N. America will be $25

Just an FYI,
All previous orders have been shipped, and there is one interested party right now. I need at least one more order to do a run of three. I'll then have one set on the shelf. It doesn't make economic sense for me to do one set at a time.

So... if anybody's thinking about it, now's a good time.

Ordered more pistons this morning, and should have a few sets available about mid March. PM or email if you're interested.

I have been running these pistons now since may, daily driving them, and running them to my 8500 rpm limiter often. I recently did a compression test and the numbers are the same as when the engine was fresh. I am very happy with them. I have a tuned mega squirt and have to run 94 octane.

I've had 3 inquiries in the last day, so I'm bumping this in case anybody has been thinking about picking up a set.

I'm going to order more soon, so if there's any interest, let me know now so I can order more at the same time.

Just an FYI, I have a dozen sets ordered and will machine them as soon as I get back from vacation in early August.

Email me if you are interested in a set, I will have internet access intermittently through the next 3 weeks.

I would be interested in that info, too. He's asked me, but we never got the g15 in. Canada, so I Wasn't able to give him an answer.

I have one set left, possibly two. Waiting to hear from one member.

They were all spoken for but a customer bailed, so I now have two sets available.
