Default Lunati / JE & Ross pistons .... anyone?

Anyone convert over to a more robust forged piston in their NOS or FI setup ? If so - what spec and brand did you use , for the stock 346 block ? ...

Both are good. JE is often considered the best.

I hear Ross has been pretty good the past 2 years, but prior to that some people had some issues.

Rob,
You can't go wrong with the JE's, or even their SRP line which are just as strong. From what I understand, they aren't finished as nice, like that matters, right. You can save about $100 on a set by going with JE's SRP line.
BTW, what plans do you have? Let me guess...uummm... a BIG shot of gas?? :smash: :)

Mike

Have used Ross successfully, but find Arias lighter and have run them to nearly 1000 hp with 38# of boost (twin-turbo) at B'ville and set records. :yesnod: All the best.
