7. The pistons are custom forgings from Wiseco. They actually start out as Chevrolet slugs designed for LS motors, but Charlie Long likes these pistons
because of the strong boxed design on the underside and the narrow pin bosses. They are a bit heavier than the pistons many other Late Model engine builders
use at 410 grams, but Charlie believes they are worth it. One important note here is that boxed pistons do require a couple thousandths more piston-to-wall
clearance than traditional designs, and the siamesed cylinders of the Ford block also require a bit more clearance, so piston-to-wall clearance with a build like this should be on the large side.
