    are pistons tapered or are they perfectly straight on each side? im asking cuz i just got a set of JE pistons and I tried putting them in my LS block and they wouldnt fit, but if i put them in upside down (top of piston into cylinder) they go down about halfway... any help will be appreciated-paul
