Noah,not to be argumentative, but we anal types who use the 2005 piston have had good success and no failures. That said, I have a box of those pistons run one race weekend. At the distance we travel, putting faith in any piston for too long can ruin a trip. If this man wants to use the $51 Honda piston he must know that it is vulnerable and has limits like everything else.
Pistons don’t last long. Write it on the wall
