 Post subject: Does anyone currently make a big bore piston?

As the title states. Is there anyone I could order a piston/kit from right now that actually has one sitting on the shelf? On the race farm website it states out of stock/pre-order only. Is everyone officially over the big bore GET?

Try Jc racing if you want just a piston. Or Steadygarage for a one stop shop.

I want just a piston. I'll do the machine work myself.

I used to be a machinist for the company that manufacturers (from what I know) all of the big bore pistons sold under different brands, so I am aware of rough pricing and minimum quantities required to get a batch made. I'm partially curious if it would be worth just getting some made myself.

Racefarm.net

We are the only people selling Big bores for the GET in Piston only form. Its the only DIY kit.

Tokyo parts sells the Chanito piston kit for like $450 or something.

Pre=Order sale ended. Full sale going back up on the site after #KillerSS2015

The GET is amazing at staying cool.

If you have overheating issues chances are your head gasket is bad or you have air in your cooling system.
