When i decided to build a VT3.It took me 3 months to figure what brand i'm going with for pistons. At the end i decided to go with Mahle,the cost was much higher than other brands. Almost double but i wanted it done right.
Haven't found another company that can match the behavior of the Mahle piston,also compatibility with the Alusil cylinder walls.
Now if i would sleeve my block and ditch the Alusil,yea i can go for any reputable piston brand i want. Nothing beats Mahle IMO in the S65 unless proven wrong.
