    VENOLIA's

    Hey Chris:

    Do you have any Venolias in stock??

    Looking for two 2.5's and possibly a set.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Those are Wiesco...which I prefer anyhow....save the better this, or better that replies, Ive used Venoila's also and they are great pistons BUT you can run tighter tolerance on the Wiesco's.


    Okay, went to the site and see they now carry Venoilas...been awhile but still endorse Weisco instead!!!

    Only problem with wiseco is they require unique rings.

    Re: VENOLIA's

    I was under the impression that Venolia no longer makes pistons for our cars, this is why i purchased Wiesco.

    Most piston makers will make custom pistons anyways.

    Re: VENOLIA's

    I heard Venolia closed up shop but was hoping Chris might have some still in stock.

    I have a personal grudge against Wiseco from many years back when I custom ordered a 2.2 set.

    Pistons were fine but the company didn't treat me right.

    I still have a set of forged TRW 2.2 pistons but am considering going 2.5 this time.

    No rush as I'm still 1 handed, just trying to weigh options and get prepared.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Re: VENOLIA's

    I'm hoping not to go custom, I already have 2 forged 2.5 Venolias and would like to get some more.

    I thought I had 4 but 2 turned out to be forged 2.2's!!

    I've had them for years and thought they were 2.5's until I re-found them.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Re: VENOLIA's

    If you go with Diamond make sure EVERYTHING is crystal clear as I've had the worst luck over the years using them. Two orders in a row even the quantity was wrong! There have been numerous other "issues" too. With that said, they're an excellent piston. Last set of Ross pistons took like 6 months to get, who can wait that long for pistons? IMO, give our vendors Cindy or Chris for Venolia's or Wiseco's a call. If your looking for JE's contact Mike @ FM and have him order them for you. CP also makes pistons too.
    Not sure if Cindy or Chris are back home yet, as both drove to SDAC this year and taking the scenic route back home. Both I'm sure are checking email and messages.

    Re: VENOLIA's

    Appreciate your input Todd.

    I figured Chris would be busy with SDAC and the 4th is no rush.

    Will try Cindy as well.

    Thanks
