  • You knew it was coming, Pistons??

    So I'm figuring that since this motor I'm building has a 3.270 stroke and a 6.125 rod that I'm not going to find an "off the shelf" piston for it. So where's a good place to get custom pistons. I've done a little checking at ROSS pistons, I kind of like the way they have a set price for custom pistons and the coatings they put on them. It was like $800 for small block pistons with a 4.125 bore and the skirt coating and thermal coating was like another $50 per piston.

    So is there anyone better to go to for these or at that point cheaper??

    Who would you go to for a set of custom pistons??

          Mahle makes a nice one. $50 per piston for coating seems high. I've used Ross and never cared for them. Probe makes a nice piston. I have arias gas ported, mahle will be the next ones.

            mahle(or any nascar surplier), might be able whip up a set. as your use'n a nascar crank and rods,
            they already know the pin height needed. I'd know your blocks (after machinging) deck height before ordering..
            head type, valve angle, etc.

                By the time you get done with this, will it have been cheaper to buy an off the shelf rotating kit of the same displacement for the same intended use? How important is the rod ratio?

                  I got a Sonny Bryant billet crank and Carrillo billet rods with coated wrist pins for $800.

                  I'm thinking I'm way ahead at this point. ;) ;D

                  As for rod ratio I really don't play into that, I'm looking at RPM. I also plan on having the block machined for roller cam bearings.

                  I want this motor to be a screamer!!!!!!!!

                        I thought you were going to turbo this thing.

                                Then why do you want to spin it?

                                  Because I want to run some LSR events, you know like Bonneville and the Texas Mile, and when it comes to LSR racing RPM is your friend. Especially if your goal is get in the 200mph club. ;)

                                  Plus for drag racing, it's going to allow me to run some pretty steep gears(5.88's??) and putting those with one of those TCI 6-speeds automatics and that car is going to run like a bat out of hell. ;)

                                    I hope you've been saving more than pennies, better have some spare time and elbow grease saved up too.... don't want to be waiting for 15 years here... and remember, a motor like this is going to need a good drivetrain and chassis.... and certified too.... better have more than pennies saved up, better have some quid....

                                        I know Jeff well say I don't know shit, but instead of spending 10k on stupid rpm parts, build 2 pumkins 1) with drag gear and spool, and a 2nd with top end gears, as you'll have the turque with turbo's to pull the gears..
                                        cause 588's and lsr will cause the driveshaft to die.. you'll pass the shafts teminal speed,, hope you got 3k for a shaft
