    as i said i would the pistons work great, car runs smoother and cleaner than it did with the stock gsr pistons. i would recommend them if your not planning on spending big bucks for weisco or j&e

    they came with floating wrist pins. stock rods and crank. just polished, it just sounds smoother... the rings on my pistons before though were bad so granted. it runs alot better, but ill give race axis a thumbs up

    how'd you use floating pins with stock rods? did you have your machinist put bushings in them?
