FORD SBF 347 PROBE FORGED PISTONS & RINGS 4.030 BORE SIZE FOR SBF FORD 347 ENGINES, FLAT TOP FOR USE WITH 5.4 BUSHED OR PRESS FIT RODS. .030 OVER.
These pistons do have the third (eyebrow) valve relief. These will accommodate the twisted wedge heads on the market.
These pistons are NEW/OLD stock from a few years back. We had changed our line of pistons over to Wiseco and had about 15 sets of the Probe pistons left over. The boxes may be dusty and disheveled looking, but the pistons are in perfect condition. There may also be a few sets that were returned due to customers making a wrong size purchase. We have discounted these pistons well below the normal price to compensate for these issues.
Our PROBE Forged pistons are custom designed with an increase in compression height. This has many advantages. Here are a few facts about compression height and deck height.
Our custom made Probe pistons have a compression height that is .012 taller than nearly all catalog pistons on the market. We find this to be a very valuable feature. Since our pistons sit at a taller than normal compression height, you will only have to remove approx. .010 off the deck surface of a virgin block to achieve a zero deck. This also allows for future deck re-surfacing and still not ending too far below stock deck height.
Leaving the deck on your block thick makes for a stronger block that resists flexing and also runs cooler, as the deck thickness has a lot to do with the dissipation of heat. Blocks with decks cut down to any great amount are also prone to cracking. This is why our pistons are designed to sit flush, (zero deck) at .010 below stock deck height.
Another good feature about our pistons having a taller compression height is that the ring land above the top ring is much stronger by being .015 thicker. When pistons encounter the effects of detonation, it is not uncommon to see pistons with the ring land above the top ring broken off. The thicker ring land also makes a better heat sink.
Our custom made Probe forged pistons are made from 2618 aircraft alloy. We find this alloy to be much more suitable for high performance engines than the common 4032 forged alloy. You will usually see the higher end pistons on the market using 2618 aircraft alloy.
Why go with 2618 forged pistons? If you encounter certain tuning issues, detonation is highly probable, and its effects can cause severe damage to your engine. The 2618 forged piston is able to withstand the damaging effects from detonation to a higher degree than the lower cost 4032 forged pistons, especially non-forged hypereutectic pistons such as Speed Pro or Keith Black, and many others.
Our Probe forged pistons will clear most any valve size on the market with ease even with the use of large lift cams.
These pistons are also suitable for use with nitrous systems up to approx. 250hp and superchargers up to approx. 15 to 17lbs of boost. For the slight increase in cost, this is the best value on the market.
