But piston companies are like any other company, they sell a product to make money, not warm fuzzy feelings. Someone will sell you whatever your heart desires for the right price, pistons included.
I have been building engines for 38 years now and I buy pistons based on what I have found not what pistons companies say.
I have had zero issues with ring spacers and I deal with alot of shops all over the world and to my knowledge no one is having any problems.
Alot of people like you base info on hear say and not hands on experiance LOL.
