I have used Mahle pistons and the modification to the oil squirters is very easy, I did them all in about half an hour. Just need a hack saw and a file.

There are pictures on my build thread:

id still say that JE is the best, if you would look at what the Supra guys use and make up to 2000 hp. Then i would say that they are more then enough for the average to big power RB26

and why isnt CP on that list ? i went with them since they dont cost very much and can handle 1200+whp

Question should really be who's the best piston designer as Wiseco/JE make a LOT of the well known slugs today.

For RB26 engines i have used Endyn who design them internally but have wiseco make them. Smart people over there...

I have been running Wiseco for about 4 yrs now.Started with 86.5 .35 bore and now I'm in the 87mm .40 bore
No issues.
When they started they were bad.
Kind of like cometic gaskets for 4 cylinders engines.
