370 Marine Pistons

I was wondering if anyone knows a good place to find 370 Marine Pistons? I'm looking for just a plain set, no fly cuts or coatings. There may a possible 1st Gen build-up in the future, Thanks. :smoke: :smoke:

if you want marine pistons, check out Cummins...lol. go to a cummins repair, or parts dealer and request 5.9 liter marine pistons, no cuts.

if you want fly cuts go to Piers.

the marine pistons have a better design, making it more efficient, making more power. Over all they are very tough.

Cummins South in Atlanta

Don't be surprised if they tell you, "If you're building one of those motors like Jeff Garmon builds we DON'T recommend it."

I'm not kidding either.

The Fat Rabbit: 2005 TDI Passat loaded GLS, Custom Rocketchip, Hybrid GT17/22V Turbo, Beta KermaTDI FMIC, Kerma Race Injectors, fuel cooler, Garmin 2620, Uniden BC246T, Avon Tech M550 A/S and Starmate Replay.

Still the fastest TDI Passat in the Western Hemisphere by far thanks to Rocketchip and KermaTDI.:Thumbup:

Thanks for the replies, I wasn't sure who might have the best price Piers-Haisley-Cummins. Does anybody know what they go for, roughly? I've been to Jeff's shop a couple of times and I understand why Cummins South doesn't want to recommend anything he does. He is straightforward in telling you what you do and don't need. Plus he makes more power in these little engines than most people that work at Cummins would believe with many of the stock internals, and that's bad for the parts business. I met many nice people while I was there, and had a great time at his shop and the track. :smoke: :smoke:

Smokem,

Try and find me a CPL number and I will call Cummins tommorow and see what I can get for a price.

Did you find a truck?

One, is the piston has a hole in it so the wrist pin to can get oil.

The bowl in the top of the piston is larger and a little more offset.

They are heavier and have a steel insert where the rings fit. Plus they cost more. Like $1000 per set of 6.

Remember, these are made for the 370 injectors and the spray pattern is nowhere like our land trucks.
