    keith black pistons

    As i was sitting back in my chair, beer on belly........ I wondered if anyone has used a Keith Black (hypereutectic) piston in a PWC or if they are even availible with or without the KB logo?
    I successfully used KB Pistons in a 6.57 sec bracket car w/ no problems whatsover in 80+ passes. I believe that they were/are very durable and can handle closer tolerances than stock/forged pistons.
    Any thoughts? Bueller? Beuller?.....Beuller?

    I would certainly wonder what the diameter of the wrist pin is and of course the pistone size in mm. Now of course we need to see or know measurements above and below the wrist pin center...............
    I think I might just hang with Polaris and/or Wiseco stuff.

    Way to step up to the plate! I figured if no one else, it'd be you! I got to thinkin about the hypertittie pistons in a pwc after talking to a bud out here about a nos motor. In a naturally aspirated motor, you can run ridiculously close piston wall tolerances w/ a KB piston. Oh, btw, we just picked up Wiseco as a dealer so lemme know if I can help w/anything!
