Default Probe pistons? Good or Bad?

I know there a company well known ford motors but I found a forged set on summit racing for decent price in dont have the crazy money to buy diamond or weisco. I wonder if there decent piston or are they crap? I want to use them in my 370 build.

I had Probe pistons in my last motor without any issues. They are VERY successful in the Ford Arena, I dont think you can go wrong there.

give them a call....when I bought mine I did just that and they said they were confident in the design up to around 14-15lbs of boost. Not sure what that equates to in nitrous power levels

I have a set in my ford 4.6 stroker turbo and it's supposed to make 800 at the wheels. I know my engine builder reccomended them for my 496 BBC build too.
