Now that I read that it did sound harsh...I forgot one of my faces (will edit) . Did not mean to sound harsh. I was just happy I saved some $$$$. I bagged the cylinders up but will take a picture in the AM.
It looks like the mechanic had an extra set of 89MM Mahles then had some J&E's made up. Being that he was a mechanic and this motor came out of one of his race cars (he upgraded to a 3.2l) I'm sure he just used what he had around the shop. There are still a few sets of cylinders/pistons floating around but they are extremely rare. Minkoff on this board has the last known set found.
