I was told the same thing, so I called JE pistons. I spoke with one of their chief engineers who said that the Mahle pistons have a very high degree of offset and that JE cannot duplicate this offset without running into structure problems. Also, the piston to wall clearance on the Mahle is quite tight. He mentioned a new JE forging that is out now which allows tighter piston to wall clearances but still not as tight as the Mahle's. So I went for the new Mahles.
