: I've talked with Steve Johnson at Wiseco. Right now, to get custom pistons, you must order at least 16 pistons. However, in the near future he promises that they will be available in sets of of as little as 4. They are willing to take a sample piston and the service manual or copies and make the custom piston using that info. So keep them in mind if you are looking for a bargain priced piston. (Forged, I believe). Same as Metric Mechanic.
From what i've heard from people who know custom pistons are a waste of time! Mahle makes the best pistons, they do not release their engineering plans, and copies of Mahle pistons never come out quit right. I tend to believe this, since German engineering tends to be as close to magic as you get (same with their beers). It can not be copied. So..stick with Mahles, they are more expensive, but provide almost perfect combustion.
