    408 piston questions

    i'm looking at getting pistons for my iron lq9 stroker, boring it .030 over, is -2cc valve reliefs gonna be enough for the l92 heads? i was told no,what should i go with when i order my pistons since i plan on doing it in the next few days.

    i want a compression ratio thats gonna be ok to run on 94 octane so is 11:1 too much, cause i've seen 4 cylinders with 10.5 stock running pump gas

    i also thought of boring the block .060 over for more cubes but not 100% sure yet if i should

    going .060 over will bring you to a 415. if you ever need to rebuild the motor, you won't be able to bore the block again.

    i use the wiseco k394a3 pistons with a -8cc dish. with my heads at 62cc, i'm at 11.3:1 compression and run 91 octane everyday.

    yeah i've decided with just a .030 over piston, found a deal on a crank and rods first so the pistons will have to wait about 2 weeks,

    how much did your wiseco's cost you?
