Also, there's a lot more to selecting a wrist pin than the length...Aside from diameter and length, there's thickness, hardness, material, and coating. How much side to side play does your rod have in the piston? That will explain why the pin is longer...(pin-piston engagement).
Lol, Crawford does not, in any way, build the best Suby motors.

Pretty much **** Crawford. It's funny, because this last year at some tuner shootout they were DNF because they had their motor go... They figured out how to **** up their 08 STi motor real quick.

Damn, Im suprised about the Mahle pins, wonder why they went so much thinner than stock. Im sure (or hope) its a stronger material, but still. God I want to build an engine so badly, and Im not even turbo yet, and just rebuilt the stocker. Belfab will be the way for me.
