They'll work but its not an ideal configuration for various reasons. B6T pistons can be found at reasonable prices if you're seeking a grassroots approach.

Where can one find B6T pistons at, can't seem to find them normally looking on my internet searches.

Fixed. If you can find them reasonably, please share. I will willingly give up my firstborn.

I've seen sets go on eBay (used of course) for under $100.

I have a set in the basement with the later weaker B6T rods (as found in the Mercury Capri) that I've listed in various places for $75. I still haven't sold them. *hint*
