Buying Aftermarket Pistons

It looks like I will need some over sized pistons for the S52. Where are the best places to look for good quality and price for the pistons?

Thanks

Matt

I'd go JE or metric both are great quality but the prices reflect that, you'll probably be lookin at a grand or more for a set

If you ever plan to do a higher duration cam, try to get a set of pistons with larger valve reliefs.
