Cheap 350 Pistons
« on: December 19, 2014, 03:15:05 PM »
OK ya'll, here's some good news for all who would like to build a strong 350P engine. I just got the info that we can now buy custom forged pistons with either stock width or smaller size rings, floating pins in the desired location, and 3.8cc valve reliefs, for $445 + freight. That's only about $100 higher than the 400 press pin Speed Pro pistons. Connect these to some RPM H-beams for $350 and you'll have a strong bottom end that can stand some 7000rpm + revs if you need to go that high.

This will make 400hp easy to reach with iron heads and the right cam. And if you want a bit more, some 65cc KRE D-ports and a small HR cam will put it closer to 500hp. And you can do all this with one of the cheap(or free) 350P blocks and cast crank.

And, if you want a stroker, you can have 'em use .990 BBC pins in the correct location for long BBC rods and build your own stroker cheaper than the Ross piston assembly.

Anyhow, the pistons are Race-Tec brand. Here's the Email I got from the cheapest source I could find for Race-Tech pistons.

"Shelf part pistons with a bore 3.905, and compression height change with wire locks (easier, better, cheaper), and pins are 445.00. Hastings ductile plasma moly 3.908 bore (not much filing) ductile plasma moly rings in 1.5,1.5, and 3MM are 104.98. Shipping for pistons and rings is 33.00. These prices are for a check. Debit cards cost 1.6%, PayPal costs 2.6, and credit cards cost 3%. We could have the pistons made for cast moly 5/64, 5/64, 3/16 OEM type rings for 64.07 and you would not need to file the gaps. If you can verify a price a dollar less, we can make it 2 dollars less. 507 445 3235 Thanks Shanon"
