    Pistons/Rods Recommendation for 800 RWHP?

    I'm about to order some pistons but I'm not sure which one I should buy. The Mahle "Turbo" Pistons are a bit pricey ($900 or so). There are also some other piston/rod combos going for $700-$800.

    I'm aiming for 550-600 RWHP on 93 pump gas and 800 RWHP on race gas.

    Which piston/rod combo do you guys recommend? (8.0-9.0:1 compression)

    I'd have thought you could buy a Mahle/Callies Combo for around $1000 or less. Or indeed Diamond or other brand of piston.

    I used Mahle/Callies on my last 346 motor, circa 9.0:1 CR using 15psi with a YSi Vortech. No idea what sort of power, but I'm sure it was over 600rwhp on pump gas

    look at some auktions, like ebay, there you might get lucky.
    lunati makes a great forced induction series but i will cost closer to 1600$
    look at probe they have some good ones for ford, and they are decent priced.

    Thanks, I was looking at the Probe rods. I had some in my Honda motor back in 2002 when it made 500 WHP and they were quite strong and slightly lighter than the Eagle rods.
