    I cannot find new ovesize pistons for a 5mge! arrrgghhhhhh

    It seems the higher compression pistons are gone from the common places. ITM sent me the correct part number and of course low compression called them and they looked at the low compression pistons and they are the same. enginetech orders from ITM. DNJ doesnt have them anymore. everyone stocks the low compression ones. This sucks. ITM and enginetech are the biggest suppliers. rockauto=itm

    This engine is obsolete.
    I do have some .20mm toyota pistons and rings I didnt want to use They are slightly used. after I rebuild this 6m engine and run it for a few months its coming out and being sold while I move to something with more availability.

    even ebay for gods sake!

    Safety doesn't make any pistons? I have oversized ones on my 6M from them I believe.

    New update. Thanks for the phone number they were very helpful. As it stands now I was correct it appears no one makes oversize pistons in the higher compression pistons. Most just have standard bore size.
    Topline ,safety, itm, dnj. However after talking to my machine shop the difference is negligible after decking the block. so i will just use the new piston setup. Engine parts international states they havent had oversize of those kind in well over a year probably more.
    I ended up ordering the parts i needed through cleggengines. nice people gave me a break on parts and carry all of the vendors.
    This engine is just not popular and is being phased out. too bad because built well its a solid motor.

    Is the name of the company Internal Engine Parts Center?

    So I assume that this is the URL:

    http://store.enginepartscenter.com/caststock-c94.aspx
    The 800 number is:
    EPC Atlanta, GA - 800-690-4334

    I could not see a listing for any 5M pistons on their web site so I guess you have to phone the 800 number and ask.
