Yeah, that's a lot.
I would look for a different piston.
Vans may not make fast getaways, but you spin the piss out of the motor
just going slow- balance issues are worse at higher rpm.
I wouldn't try shaving off 26 grams, that's too much. That's gotta be a
casting difference, as in different molds or something.
Surely someone must have some pistons laying around...
What's the weight Rod?
