Ayuh,... I'm Sure it's got Everything to do with Volume.....

The 430 Isn't all that popular of a motor.....

I would also say the cost has to do with that there just are not that many 430 Buicks around, Low Demand = Low Volume = High Cost. I would be happy that you can still get pistons for your engine, some engines you cannot get parts for.

Its not people who just flappin there mouths either respectable people who raced and work for big coparations before most of you were born. just a little frustrated

www.egge.com is a last resort for obsolete engine parts. Their stuff is not OEM quality, but their pistons will fill the hole for a driver.

thnx, jack vines
