Anyone used D.S.S. Racing

EDIT: I meant D.S.S!

Looking for opinions on their parts.

Want to use a set of their forged pistons for my SBF.

Thanks.

I would call the piston maker and talk to them and ask them who sells the most of this or Ford related product and then call them

I heard their stuff is manufactured in house now, but that could just be some BS. I will give them a call.

Thanks.

never heard of DDS but if you are talking about DSS, I've only dealt with them once and I was not at all happy with the outcome.

Dang, I'm funny.

Yes, I meant D.S.S! Oops!

I've have just been having a hard time finding a dish/inverted dome piston with a 10-13CC volume for my 393. The stuff I have found has been around $800-$850, and I am not spending that on what was supposed to be a budget motor.

D.S.S wants $450

My buddy ran one of their 306 SBF shortblocks for awhile with a supercharger.I don't think he had any problems,i'm guessing it had their brand pistons in it but not sure.

Later Mark.
