measured them up ant the tops are round but the difference from the skirt side to the pin side is about .016" !!!! What you think? Reusable? lol

Stock build, or boosted?

Boosted, 300whp.

Stock compression means your tune has to spot on. I detonated horribly and blew the pistons apart, but even forged wouldn't have lasted. Good tune and you'll be fine.
