MOST 350 pistons have a bit different skirt design than 327 but ALL 350 pistons have a different pin height than a 327. 350 pistons in your 327 will have the piston WELL below deck and about 5.4-1 compression ratio..

Any of the aftermkt dealers can get 327 pistons, just have to be ordered and cost much more than 350's. Low production/demand= higher cost.. A fact of life in the automotive world..

Open up a Summit catalog, they have several listings for 327 pistons. Some are hypereutectic and others are forged. Listed compression ratios are from 7.65:1 to 11.86:1. Should you choose to order a set you'll want to calculate your compression with the actual parts you will be using. The listed ratios are merely guidelines.

Speed Pro has a hyper piston with a flat top 2 valve relief, with teflon coated skirts all over Ebay for around $170, I think dirt track thunder carries them also. Thing is, be careful of what kind of pistons you get, if you buy the common cast "rebuilder" pistons, it`ll have .020 off the compression height, then when at top dead center, the piston will be .045 in the hole, this pistons kill compression, quench, and power.
