No shit. For $700, might as well get some forged aftermarket pistons.

Champion Toyota sells 7M pistons for between $30-40 each.

Ring set is about $130-140, and no, it's not 1 size for all of them.

for 720 you can get je forged pistons from mvpmotorsports, which are alot better than stock, but that doesnt include rings.

I can get ITM pistons with chromoly rings for $149.00 even a set. I run an engine and transmission repair shop and can get engine parts at cost but I am also limited to what they stock. They said ITM will be able to handle the power I am looking for, but the cost kind of scares me. However if they were sold to retail then the cost would be around $400 a set.

If u run an engine and repair shop do the MKIII friendly thing and help everyone get Forged Internals for cheap.
