Re: piston opinions

Probe pistons are made by Ross. If you look under the piston you will see a small machined section about 1/2 " X 1/4". This is where Ross put their brandname and Probe machine it off.
Probe are a good brand, but I'm biased because I own a set!

Re: piston opinions

Probe is a good forged piston.

Re: piston opinions

What sort of stroker kit did you get? And who did you get it from? (still toying with the idea myself)

Re: piston opinions

They are a very good piston and lasted very well in harsh testing while being run lean and having the arse thrashed of them.
