    question on when you replace pistons

    I over the summer hurt a piston and have to replace them. I was one wondering what some of you out there think are the best ones to go with? I have a 2006 RXP and it has the stage 3 kit on it. Then second I have been told by someone that I need to replace all of these parts when doing so is this true??? And if so why are these bolts only one time use bolts, they aren't like car bolts that can be reused? Thanks for anyones help in clearing this up for me.
    When replacing the pistons make sure he knows that he will also have to use new head bolts, rocker bolts, connecting rod bolts, crankshaft bolts, and flywheel bolts. These all need to be replaced as they are all one time use parts

    They are stretch bolts. Once they are torqued plus angle they stretch and are not reusable
