Pistons that are used in Clevelands w/ 6" rod

Hi everyone,

I am currently checking out what components I can use when I finally build my cleveland. I would prefer to stay with a 351, and use the 6" 302 rod. I wanted to know if anyone knows of a good quality piston that I could use. I know that I can order customer made ones, but I was wondering if there is an off-the-shelf set? I thought I read somewhere that Speedpro or KB Silv-o-lite offered a mass produced set. Can anyone shed any light?

cheers Chris

So these would suit a 302c rod too, or just the stroker? I didn't know there were so many off shelf option for a 302c rod. Or is there.
