    Im still in think mode about doing mine for my blower, but I have seen a lot of guys with the DSS piston's and I think Ross has mod pistons too that are very good. You looking for comp around 8 to x right ???

    Look into some manley H beam rods and Diamond/Mahle pistons....you will want to go with a 17cc dished piston with a pi head depending on what blower combo you have. The 17cc with give you @9.3 ish comp which is perfect for centri blowers. If your going with a Kenne Bell or Turbo you will want a 23cc dished piston to drop the compression in the upper 8's like me :)
