Stick to the factory specs! Its easy to get too worried about something relatively insignificant, like how many molecules leak through the ring gap, and forget about the downside risk of blowing the top off your piston!!

you don't wanna ask me. I checked my records from when I built a 400 with silvolite hyper pistons. I gapped them at 32. and still broke the top off one. and another one broke between the oil ring and the wrist pin. I'm one of those guys who put down the manufacturer, because 2 pistons came out of the box broken in the same way. If you need something more than stock dish pistons, put the money out for some decent forged ones. It'll save you doin your motor all over again. It's possible to get a good set of hyper's. But why take the chance?
