    215 vs 185 pistons

    Can any one share their knowledge or experience (or even pictures) regarding the 215 vs 185 pistons? We all know that one is forged and one is cast... but what about their look. If someone was staring at the two engines with the heads off could they tell the difference... dome height maybe?

    Thanks for any help,

    Jeff

    I'm bringing this back up because I am in the market for some 215hp pistons. If anyone can shed some light on how to differentiate them from the 185hp version, it would be much appreciated.

    Also... if you know of some "good" pistons for sale, please let me know (I need four).

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Thanks Steve, this does help

    Now, if someone out there has a similar picture of the 185hp piston, I could probably decern the difference by just looking at them.

    Steve, the part number (420890246) is not stamped on the piston, is it.

    NO Jeff sorry but it is the SAME number on all three boxes so i either got the three correct ones for 215hp or 3 wrong ones! u could confirm with the OEM parts store though! i gotta get my ASS back on my GRASS before it rains here! good luck!
