Default Supertech?

I just noticed in the new catalog you have changed from WiseCo to Supertech pistons. Is there a functional reason for this? Will they be offered at competitive prices in the future?

If by "competitive" you mean $50/piston - no. But the change is letting us maintain the pricing we have now, which is good for a high-end piston.

By competitive I'm talking more in the $110 per piston range which seems to be the going rate for the supertechs.

We're still evaluating these, at the moment we're shipping Wisecos.

I pinged Bill about this yesterday. Too many engines, not enough cars. We haven't made any progress here at all, and we're still shipping Wisecos. Putting the Supertech piston in the catalog was premature.
