Re: Do you know where your pistons are?

Wow thats pretty crazy. Obviously they are forging the motor for a higher boost turbo kit. They will probably have some info about it soon.

And I'll bet the Jeep is sitting in a corner collecting dust with no motor.

Wow $650 (including shipping) for cast pistons and crappy sintered rods. You can buy a new set of 4340 forged Hs with 7/16" ARP 2000 rod bolt upgrade for less.

The question is not how much dust does it have now, but how thick will the layer be when it becomes evidence in the lawsuit.

Re: Do you know where your pistons are?

There have been a few sets on ebay, but the auctioned ended at ~$150. There are also a few intakes around ~$400(not sure why). I guess some folks can afford $13k for a stroker?

Or they're just forging the bottom with standard displacement (or clean up hone) pieces.
