JE piston # 123567 and I cannot find any one that prices them online - any suggestions where to try?

The J&E's are about $650-700.00.  Not $1200.00, this is what I use in all the engines that we build.......

Jerry, after we spoke that's what they quoted me maybe I should try another vendor?

and WHY have a Z28/302... unless you're going to build it and drive it as it was designed??...
If you want a 'daily driver' with 'Z28 emblems'...then pull the original 302 (store it away for *resale day*), and stick a stock 350 or 307 in it...

...the 302 (as designed) was classified by Chevy as a SHP (special high performance) engine....  not very many got that classification.
without the full gamut of factory parts, it ain't special...  (it's not the DZ stamp on the block that made it special)... Smiley

well your right i should sell it and buy a 307 car
in the past my Z has had a 327 in it, a 396 a 427 and a 350 now I want the real 302 in it. with exhaust manifolds whats so wrong with having this as a driver? no more str$$t racing, no track time so I dont need a $1200 set of JE pistons... yes i will spin it up  and have some fun. after looking at all the options- Speed Pro, SRP, KB, Ricks, Wiseco its amazing that for whatever reason they are all different in compression and dome heights, rings, compositions

tighter fit = more friction, lower horsepower, lower RPM... 
this is going to be a driver,   I'd really like to see that comparison on a dyno LOL less clearance than forged yes but there is still clearance - more friction from the rings than the piston

after thinking more about the use this 302 will get I am thinking more about the Ricks pistons - correct dome , tighter fit, less oil consumption - who has used these? what ring thgicknesses? 3/32 or 1/16" ? I really cant find any more specs on them but I did find that Summit Racing carries them

Sealed Pro used to be made by TRW..  but that was long ago..?

Eddie
OK what can we tell about these pistons JE appears to be a good brand and idea what compression these may be or the specs on them?? price seems reasonable
Speed pro is all i have found and they are discontinued I would figure that these would be fine but need a little milling down to 11:1 they are listed at 11.8:1 any machinist know how much needs to be milled down? I believe they are at about .400 - so down to .250?
84  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 12, 2012, 07:52:44 AM
anyone have thoughts on the speed pro pistons available now with the coated skirts? they show 11.8:1 w 64cc heads I assume i would need to mill them down to get 11:1
85  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 11, 2012, 02:51:12 PM
I have looked at the Hypereutectics and they are also avail, thru summit for about 40$ cheaper. I am wanting to stay forged as OE and I dont think the ring thickness will matter it wont get alot of miles on it

Hello guys I am looking for recomendations for pistons for my 302 +.030 build - I have searched, I spoke to Jerry M (he recomended J/E pistons but I cant see $1200$ for a set of race pistons for a driver) I know they say TRW or Speed pro have wrong ring grooves 1/16" vs 3/32" but is there anything wrong with them? plans for my car is for cruise nights and some trips in my car no drag racing (not official anyway  Wink  )  what have Y'all used on yours and pros/cons? and whats the stock dome height .250? I want to be at 11:1 no decking done to DZ block
Thanks

89  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / windshield lower trim screw size and type info needed on: March 13, 2012, 02:59:27 PM
ready to install windshield trim and as you know the lower trim has clips and screws to attach to the cowl. I have searched forums and venders and what i have found is they are 5/16" hex head screws anybody know what size screw and the length? pics would be nice if you have any too!
