    Looks good. Is the top coated but the sides aren't?

    I believe the top is ceramic coated and the sides are teflon coated...

    I just want to personally thank Slocum for working with Revan Racing and L&M Engines and Lund Racing on this build. Much more to come Stay Tuned...

    This is one of the instances where Revan Racing took the lead for the project as we have done on many other projects to deliver the highest quality products and craftsmanship available in the industry today!!

    A single point of contact for all of your build needs. Suspension, Engine, Build.

    Thanks Slocum. :rockon:

    You're welcome. I want to thank you for putting so much effort into the planning phase. I feel that we have discussed my goals and then responded with an integrated built that will exceed my expectations. You have handled EVERY vendor issue perfectly and I believe that is as valuable as having Michael at L&M build my engine. Your attention to detail and passion for the car will ensure my build is successful and efficient (time wise).

    I will buy everything I need from you in the future.

    Michael

    I know of at least one other builder who uses Diamond pistons built to "their specs". No doubt there are others. Makes me wonder if the various "house" Diamond pistons are like "house" Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses the national chain bedding/furniture stores sell - different order numbers, but essentially the same product.

    a lot of builders you Diamond and make custom orders to the motor they're building. custom order is always better than off the shelf pistons. i've researched countless hours on my build and haven't found another 5.4 piston with thicker dome/skirt wall thickness as L&M. they also use H-13 pins while others use 9310(very strong as well). they're all the 2618 alloy, but it's the little things that set the L&M design apart.

    Thanks bull3441. Steeda guys removed, crated and sent my engine to Livernois. Since they seemed to know what they were doing, I went with their recommendation. I'll let them know they might want to consider L&M in the future.

    In your research, what was the main difference between pistons used by Livernois and L&M?

    Yes- I feel that Van @ Revan and Michael @ L&M have done a fantastic job. 2-3 more weeks and it will all be completed...
