Those are the Mahle "RSR style" forged pistons that are generally used for SC motors converted to carbs or mfi. The deeper valve pockets allow for extra clearance to run bigger cams. I would use those over the Max Moritz style in a CIS motor if twin-plugging.

Interesting that the CR is listed at 9.5:1 on the ebay ad when Mahle says the CR for that set is 10.2:1. BTDT, I would probably agree with the seller's claim over Mahle's.

I used the same style (only 100mm's for a Carrera) for my 3.5L twin-plug Motronic motor.

$1950 for those pistons & cylinders would be a GREAT price IMO if indeed they are in the condition that the seller describes them. WHOLESALE on that set is just about double!

I think it mentions that the 5 ring sets are included? If so, call Andial and ask how much a replacement set for #6 are, they keep the big bore piston rings on the shelf (or wall in this instance!)
