I have the same kit, but purchased from summit racing for the same price. The pieces were actually shipped from scat after they do a static balance on the assembly. It came with KB pistons,( hyperutetic) and moly rings. Had the machine work done locally to the block, when it was all assembled I had no clearance issues. I would purchase it from summit you get to pick the CC of the piston you want. I got +13 CC pistons to go with my 62 CC heads I have 10:1 CR. Don't forget this piston will travel an additional 1/8 inch in the cylinder both directions leaving you with a deck clearance of .016 compared to a normal 350 of. 125. This will have a big impact when calculating you compression ratio. Make sure the piston has a compression height of 1.43, this raises your wrist pin on in the piston to reduce the cylinder sidewall pressure and keeps your piston below your deck.
