I have a (brand New in the box), set of ROSS Pistons with ceramic coating (Top and sides). I really don't want to sale them, but me and my wife are going through some ruff times.

If you want CHRfab.com Cams, Nitrous or turbo let me tell you this is the ONLY way to go; they really are the pistons you need if you are serious of making your dream engine. An excellent choice for a fraction of the real price....
Ross Pistons $823.
Ceramic Coatings $250
(total) $1073 MY PRICE $750 Ship to your door step. (Yes Marry Christmas to you)
DON'T THINK TWICE THIS HAVE TO GO SOON!

If you want such engine for the future, buy now and save them (Don't let this chance go)

Call (772) 579 1803 or email jaimee355@hotmail.com

What's the details on these?
Stock replacement? Higher/Lower Compression? Rings? What year are they for (does it matter)?

These were made for 93-99 engines, but I think they will probably work on newer years too. Stock compression is what they have (10.5 I believe). Enough to make power and still run with regular pump gas. And you can use the (better) stock rings on them too. 1.5mm top, 1.5 middle, 3.0 oil ring. These are the best size rings for performance since the newer engines have thinner rings which was only done to make them more smog legal and to save gas (maybe 1 or 2 miles per gallon), but for performance these are the sizes you'll want to have. and who cares about 1 better mile of gas when you are running Nitros...

One thing is true these won't last me much longer I just posted them in another forum and got three replies in 20 mins.... You got my Cell # and email get back with ASAP! This is a One time deal only.

I forgot to mention they are for .005 over which is enough to straighten your block while keeping the max of the thickness possible.

Pay day's friday... First cheque from new job, so I'm not sure how much to expect.

For these pistons I would have to bore the block out 5 thou right? I thought you couldn't bore the blocks because of the annodized surface or somthing wierd like that? :cookoo:

Northstars have cast-in-place cast iron liners. Bore away. A good rigid hone like a Barnes or Sunnen will quickly remove 0.005 inches. You have to go clear back to the Chevy Vega of the '70s to find an unlined aluminum block.

You mention nitrous,

On Ross's site they mention that they do somthing different to the pistons if you tell them they are for a nitrous application... Did you tell them they are for Nitrous, or are they 'normal'?...

It's not really a big concern, just one of those things to know if I buy them :)

When it comes to forged pistons there are two different alloys:
One (the most popular of the two) is 2618, which is the most affordable, and this is what my pistons are made out of.

The other one is not so popular because it is not cost effective (way too expensive) and it requires even more money for properly machined work required on the engine.

So unless you are going to worry about running alcohol for fuel, it doesn't really matter.

There is no coating on the inside of your liners, the true fact is that they require a specific stone (nothing impossible) or extremely rare, but just make sure whenever you get the machine work done to your engine the machinist knows this ahead of time (most times they do) but an old fashion machinist won't.

The honing procedure is in the factory service manuals and some of us ignorant oldtimers have been doing it for years, grasshopper.

I'm not giving up on this....
There is got to be someone on this forum that could definitely use these pistons. And it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out how good of a deal these really are, with enough savings to even spare a good set of MLS gaskets ($100 a piece),

You get pistons and MLS gaskets at the price of pistons alone. (No to even mention that you’ll get the ceramic coatings for free)

Please if you want any pictures or details just email me at:

Just as a heads up to whoever buys these and plans on putting them in and then running the juice/forced induction realize you will need to at minimum timesert the block and at worse put in head studs, also put in forged rods. See Mark99STS's posts about his turbo'd STS as he had to use headstuds to prevent lifting the heads, he also put in forged rods and he knows where to get them. Also, you might want to read up on Iceheart's sweet Eldo that used Nitrous without timeserts and lifted a head.

This is a really good deal BTW!
