Got them today! These are nice for cheap pistons. They are lighter than my old TRW dished, they have a better pin location too. This would be a good piston for a standard head build too, even if you never plan to use SCJ's.

They are not "cheap". They are relatively inexpensive.

I can do dual relief flat tops right now, but not at this price point. It's unlikely that we'll be doing a large run of flat tops like these with dual reliefs as the compression when paired with SCJ heads would be more in line with a race oriented piston....meaning 2618 alloy, 1/16" rings, and a possible pin upgrade.

Sorry Mark.... I meant to say " Incredible low priced pistons with very high quality beyond expectations!"
I would recommend these for a stock head rebuild, with the future upgrade to SCJ's being possible too.
