My understanding is that they are good pistons but JE's coating for our application is not that great. Talk to Chris @ Turbokraft - the guy knows his stuff!

The FSR is a nice option, a little lighter than their (already lightweight) standard piston blank and can contribute to making the engine rev-happy.

We selected the FSR option for our custom-profile pistons used in several big engine builds, including a pair of 3.8L GT2+ twin turbos:



Correct -- we do not use their in-house piston coatings.

Yup, my shop is using them in my 3.0 turbo build, with a Chambone crank (6lbs lighter than stock), pauter rods and FSR pistons, should spin a tad faster.
