Never said there was anything WRONG with Egge. I SAID, there are much better pistons available for the same or less money. I have no idea who the shop you mention is. If they use Egge, I suspect they do restoration and mild performance. Egge pistons are NOT suited to high performance applications. Cast and too heavy. Light forgings are nearly ALWAYS better for any application.

My point was to NOT limit yourself. There are innumerable combinations to make engines do different things. No need to be defensive, it's YOR money, spend it how you see fit. But remain open-minded, as that's how we (car folks) move ahead. No matter how you approach this, it's GOING to make torque, so relax about that. Not unlike the Pontiac, the Cad can make TOO MUCH torque at too low an engine speed.
