Default Custom Pistons : UPDATED please read

Effective immediately I will no longer be doing business with Racetec/Autotec pistons.


I'm not going into details publicly, but if anyone has any problems with any of the Racetec or Autotec pistons they have purchased through me, please contact me privately regarding the matter.


Eric

Wish I had seen this before I had the 69 L78 redone at .070 overbore. We had to get open-chamber pistons, then machine them for the closed-chamber heads.

I wish I knew how to get more traffic through this forum so people knew that I offer far more than just carburetor work. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/frown.gif[/img]

Eric's muscle car engine knowledge is one of the best kept secrets on the SYC...he applies the same level of professionalism and attention to detail with a motor or a carburetor.

I would encourage folks to check with him when they need parts or have an engine related project...there will be no doubt as to the outcome.

This guy is tops in my book. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

Randy at Auto Tech Former JE Guy, is a Great guy! He knocks out custom pistons for me in just a few days. Have raced with him for many years. I'm sure Eric has the same relationship with him so give Eric your order and he will take great care of you.

Good to know Eric. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/headbang.gif[/img]

I too had to order Ross custom pistons for my 396/402 as they were .070/.040. They weren't cheap either......$1100 which included file fit rings.

I'll let others know also.

Steve, Tom, Craig &amp; Ken, thanks. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/smile.gif[/img]

There's a sticky post titled &quot;Expanding my line of parts &amp; services&quot; that has over 4K views, but I can count on one hand the number of non-carb related deals I've done since posting that, so obviously something's not working or I'm doing something wrong.

I'm working on an idea now that I'll be posting up here and in the Lounge forum very shortly. Keep an eye out for it, and <span style="font-style: italic">please</span> tell your friends!

p.s. Kurt, I know it's after the fact now, but for anyone else reading this, I could've beaten that price (yes, for a <span style="text-decoration: underline">custom</span> piston) by several hundred dollars. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/frown.gif[/img]
