    Rebuild and supercharge isn't a bad idea. It will blow you away.

    Nice looking setup. Curious why they'd put "C63" on the con rod, instead of "M156/9" - anyone know?

    Also - are the rods Pauter? They look like them. Swaintech for the coatings?

    Looks well thought out - look forward to the dyno and track results from one (or more) of these beasts.

    Could be that particular rod was for a C63, not sure though.

    This is something @Weistec will have to answer.

    I believe those shots were of my pistons before they were installed. The engines are very streetable but as soon as you look at the go pedal they start to growl!

    Fairly soon I will have the time to take to the track and will let you know my thoughts.

    Good luck with that and then tuning and everything else.

    This isn't quite that simple.

    Ya, like it's that easy. If it were that easy he would have already done it. Like he's gonna just call up JEGS or Summit and get a set.

    I am sure the pistons can be made at a good price but I would personally rather spend a extra US$2000 knowing its tried and tested and there will be no second guessing when it comes to the reliability and functionality of those key parts.

    George, also remember he is quoting stock pistons presumably using the stock specs. I wonder how much extra for the R&D to relocate the ring lands and for the strengthened wrist pin design.

    Uh, why wouldn't they still post here? They just prefer to let their products speak for them and not get too involved in the forum stuff.

    Yes, they got the notification. What they choose to say or not say is their business.

    I have no idea why they wouldn't - it was just a question, since I haven't seen them post anything here in quite some time.

    Yes, they got the notification.
    Thanks.

    Respectfully, I thought I was... that was the point of posting questions in a Weistec thread, on a forum where Weistec is a vendor/sponsor and actively maintains a user name.

    And I'll try to help you get an answer but as I said they don't sit here and answer every question.

    Yes, I noticed. And yet, while the last login was yesterday, the last Weistec post was over a month ago. So, just lurking, but not posting. That was what prompted my question.
