No price difference on machine work for 0.060 vs 0.020. At least there shouldn't be. The only diff in price should be cheap stock pistons vs forged pistons. Even then you are only looking at like a $200 difference.

I want forged.

So .060 it is. The core I have has a melted piston in it and I haven't opened it up yet. So the .060 gives it a bit of buffer room anyways.

Just a heads up...

"Dear Ryan,

Thanks for your question. I did check with Beck/Arnley, and I was told that this part number is for a set of four.

Thank you,

Jessica

My motor is running lower compression .060 pistons. I really wish I could give you more details but, the motor is mystery to me.

fwiw, my old sebring supercharger setup made 170whp on 6psi with the motor I have now. The dispacement is definately a bonus.
