Is that damage from a lean out? What fuel you using?

Yea Steve willy did build the motor. I was just young and dumb and thought the Pistons would be fine.....

I'm just using pump fuel but what you have to understand is that hypertec Pistons aren't forged there just standard Pistons with a ceramic coating.

Plus my boost controller cuts the boost to 8 psi if the mixtures get to lean

It looks just like an ACL race series piston.

That's exactly what they are I was under the impression they were the same thing either way the piston wasn't a proper forgie and it failed and ultimately I failed when I had the motor built.

The important thing is that the motor ,powerglide , drive shaft and diff are bullet proof so no matter what I throw at the car from now on I know nothing will break.
