The pistons are not hugely different but the S54 rods are significanty thinner.

The next step we are taking, is to build the motor with no sleeves and see what the stock block will handle reliably without sleeving. Bossman says he wants to have it built and in the car before end of this year ..

We're probably gonna go with the lower compression pistons on this build since they are around 30grams lighter. Then next motor after this one will be full out race motor and we'll go nuts with it. Right now we just want to see what the stock block will handle without sleeves.

Sounds great, thanks for the R&D and also sharing them with us.
