All pistons are aluminum, but a skirt less piston weighs less. The down side is they will not last as long as a standard piston and will slap much sooner. But leave more room if your stroking the motor. I'm sure it will have a special contour for more compression with the proper squelch.Chief yelling alot said:

The estimates I have set the mark between 350 and 400hp and the same for the torque. What that comes out to be through the slushbox to the rear wheels, I don't know yet.. a T19 would probably lose less.. but it's hard enough to drive with two hands on the wheel, and two feet on the throttle.
Well then you should at least give us the estimate to tease us a little
