Caltric Pistons

Anyone use caltric Pistons? They are about 1/2 the price of Namura pistons and 1/4 the price of Wiseco pistons

You get what you pay for. Cheap stuff is generally not quality and quality is generally not cheap.

If you buy a utility piston for a utility engine and use it for utility purposes, it will be fine.

But if you buy a lawn mower engine, put it in a mini van and try to get a speeding ticket, you are going to invest a lot of money to be severely disappointed.
