I would check Wiseco,or Diamond pistons. Its going to depend on what rod you use though, For instance if you use a 6.00 you will need a pin placement at 1.375 and 1.250 for 6.125 rods and 1.125 for 6.250 rods. I'm sure you can find what your looking for,back in the day sprinters use to use a 400 block with a 307 crank for the 360ci sprint cars. Check for clearance and if you use a GM steel crank you will have to radius it for the other than stock rods.

get some pistons for a 6" rod 377 and they will fit if you use a 6.250 rod.

Stockcar5, That will only work if you cut the deck down to 8.865. I don't think you'll find a machine shop anywhere that will do that.You could however find pistons 377 with a 3.50 stroke 6.125 rod and set the deck at 9" And that works out perfect. sleepy
