I went somewhat conservative with my 408 (build still in progress). I went K1 crank and H-beam rods. Wiseco -8cc pistons. Stock 317 castings with BTR Platinum spring set and Ferrea stainless valves. Stock LS3 gaskets. I'll be around 10.5:1. Bought a custom grind Cam Motion cam to match the setup. The car will be primarily used for street fun, but will occasionally see some road course time, so they spec'd a broad power band that will give me pull out of the corners without having to downshift to do it.

Hey jake just thought id ask you about to buy some molnar rods crank and cp bullet pistons and get it balanced i was informed they wont have the pistons they will get the weights from the manufacturer and balance the rods and crank to that does that sound ok or should i get it balanced locally as a complete kit?

Just balance it locally.

You were going to buy the CP Bullet pistons from Molnar?

CP Bullets are also good. Have a .180" wall wrist pin and many of the same features. A little thicker ring package. But shouldn't matter in your case. If the piston is under 670 it's a good value.

JE pistons, I'm using them now. 2618 alloy, very light. I have a new set of 416 c.i. here and they weigh 420 grams ea without pins they're domed and 4.070 bore. SRP, also very light would be a good choice for a DD because of they're high silicon content/ low expansion is a 4000 alloy. Just my 2 cents. Icon pistons are even lighter. Light pistons never hurt in a NA motor
