    Sc Pistons

    Where Is The Best Place To Go To Get Stock Sc Pistons?
    Thanks

    Not to be rude, but for the price aftermarket pistons are brining and the strength they offer the difference would be negligible and the performance opportunities and durability would be significant.

    you can get stock pistons at advance auto parts for under $60 each. Forged pistons sell for about 3X that.

    Better way is to get aftermarket, forged pistons will be better, stock are too soft. 20% overboost will fry these pistons like butter.

    tuning is the key to save pistons, running 20psi with no problems

    Sealed Power makes the stock replacement piston. www.rockauto.com will sell them for under $30 each. Other places should be able to do the same.

    Aftermarket forged aluminum pistons sell from $70-$80 per piston. If you're just looking for a good stock rebuild, then Mike's Sealed Power option is the way to go.

    Not exactly. I ran stock pistons at over 400rwhp and over 20psi. When I pulled them out they looked as good as anyone else. I don't necessarily recommend that though.
