Ok, here is where i am at so up to now.
86ETA27 from another site states that he has done the shaving; actually he was the one I was referring to about the statement of “shaving .080” in my previous post. We are emailing back and forth and will try to get any info on the shaving, who what where, how much, when.
Found 2.9 piston at MM. Talked with Teddy, great help, they have the 2.9 or 2900 series piston.
86 mm bore 9:6.1 with the 2.7 crank and 2.5 rods. Was told these are direct bolt, $1170.00 a set (with wrist pins and c clips). Rings $180.00. They use this combo in one of their build motors.
Here is a good and informative post 2.7 Rebuild info - Page 3 - R3VLimited Forums
I will have information from JE, brcperformance and Wiseco in the next couple of days. I have to get a little bit more info and email a data sheet to Ross to get their information.
