496 Pistons SRP or Probe?

The Probes part #2618 SRS seris come with mahale moly rings. Srp part #212157 are about $40 more for a set and come with JE pro seal pistons rings. Both pistons have 18 cc domes and same CR. From pics srps seem to have a more rounded dome.

Anyone have good or bad experinces with either one of this pistons or ring sets? Thanks for your 2 cents

Motor is going in a g body no bottle

I have run the probe pistons in both small block chevys and big inch small block ford engines with zero issues.

I have use the SRP'S in small and big chevys with zeros issues also.

IMO i would buy the SRP'S. I feel they are a bit better piston.

Can't help wit the rings becasue i don't use either one of them in my builds.
