I am looking for a place to buy a set of
Stock pistons for my rebuild of 86 shelby charger
Anyone know who carries them?

I can't afford 600 bucks forged pistons.

Thanks in advance

Do you know for sure that you need new pistons? If the pistons and your cylinder walls look good, just hone the cylinders and buy a new set of Hastings standard bore rings.

Well, I guess if it's at a reputable machine shop, then he is probably sure that you need them. You may try and give Cindy at FWD Performance a call. I know she was selling some on Ebay a while back, but may have sold them. Other than that, if you're keeping the car bone stock(stock boost anyways), I guess you could buy some cast pistons from places like Northern Auto parts, or Ebay. Just make sure you get turbo spec pistons(they have a big dish in them), and (from what I've heard over the years) don't by Hypereutectic pistons(like Keith Black pistons).
