I don't know...odds are there...

The DNJ pistons have worked out well for people's builds? This is the second engine I've built that utilizes those pistons. OST-032, Skippy... that engine was also built using the DNJ pistons, Skippy's engine is now being used in a FX16 built for rally use. https://instagram.fvno1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v...
