Avoid these light castings.
Listen to Mark regarding a cylinder head chamber volume that compliments your piston selection.... or visa-versa!
These two must be correct for one another!
Baxter, are you building an engine, or simply replacing cylinder heads?
I ask because if you are custom building one, now is your prime oportunity to make a better piston selection than the full dished piston.
If you are building one, take a minute and read posts 7 and 9 here.
