Default Ebay pistons

Has anyone used them?

I've searched around and had one close thread that wasn't answered.

This is for a NA BP I'm building on an extreme budget for him.

Here's why the stock pistons are a no go.

i have some 99 pistons i haven't thrown up on the fs section yet 9.5 compression low miles good shape. nobody has gone down that road and reported back about it. a lot have asked that same question though with no response as far as i can remember. The stock pistons are pretty stout as far as stock pistons go.

I'll keep in touch, I figured someone would have some experience, good or bad.

Edit: PM me with a price.

I bought my Weisco pistons off E-Bay.....but I'm guessing that's NOT what you are talking about.

PM me a price.

I almost feel like I should be the guinea pig for these pistons, just because no one else has. I'm surprised, we jumped on the ebay rods like hot cakes.

Any luck? I know this is over 4 years old but it's a cliff hanger....
