could anyone post up a pick of there vitara pistons and possibly the box they came in cause i just got mine and they seem a little brittle like there easy to break. thanks.

also i am doing my z6 build and i already got SLS top mount, turbonetics t3
.57 trim, SLS 3in downpipe, tial 38mm wastegate(open dump), kteller 2.5 down pipe back with a Spoon N1 axel back. im going to the internals now and i ordered the vitara piston combo on ebay for $155, eagle h beams, arp rod bolts, headstuds, and mainstuds. head is going to be ported with a zex stage 2 cam with spings and retainers. is there anything else that needs to be addressed or any other suggestions to be made on my set up, any advice would be greatly apreciated. thanks

how do tghe feel brittle?

You have a Rockwell Hardess test fingers?
they are extremely light

have you ever flicked a hard metal or forged piston. your finger kind of hits it with a thud, even with most OEM Honda pistons. the Vitaras just seem like you could snap the skirts off with a pair of pliers or something

+1, thought i was going to break them when i took them out of the box to inspect them after shipping.

you got the spoiled ones lol...j/k... OEM Suzuki pistons are not made of the same material/strength as the replacements one..They arent coated either as the replacement ones and they wont hold the same power...this is one of the times when the replacement is better than the original.:TU:

Plus the OEM ones are more xpensive too..
