Ok guys, I have decided to put in some forged pistons as I put my motor back together. I’m looking at Ross, JE, CP, and Wiseco. Which ones would any of you recommend? I’ll be boosting 25+ psi on a 62-1 along with a small shot of nitrous. This will be with a 2.0mm MHG. Is there any reason I should go with .020 over rather than .040 over?

You're not going to see much difference going 40 instead of 20. You're just lessening the amount of times you can punch out your cylinders.

I have JE's. The thing with JE's is they use thinner rings for less friction. Some say it makes them not as durable :dunno:. Also, they require more clearance than some of the other pistons, so they are noisy when cold. That's kind of nice, though, as I can tell when my car warms up just by sound :)

I'm thinking of going with the Ross .017 over. They are the cheapest and come with everything needed. Does that sound like a good pick?

I run Ross pistons. For the price, they cant be beat. Im currently running 21 psi on a 60-1 and make around 400 HP. I'll be adding a small nitrous shot sometime in the near future. They seem to be holding up fine. I took the head off a couple months ago for a valve job and they looked good as new. Id recommend them.

I've run Ross's before, had them ceramic and dry film coated, ran lean on a 22psi run, and now I'm waiting on a set of Wiseco--Ross doesn't come in .040 over (unless I want to shell out for custom). My machinest weighed them and they were within .25 of a gram of each other, so I would reccomend the Ross's.
