You can get a set of TRW-L2348F30 for around $300 or better.

Alex might even be able to get you a deal on them.

I hve yet to actually win anything I bid on. I have bid on several sets of pistons on ebay for a cleveland, and have yet to "win". I even played the game right the last time and waited til 5 minutes before the auction closed to start bidding. They went from $200 to $325 in less than 3 minutes.

The last set of pistons I bought outright were Arias domed pistons, .030 over, and they were "on sale" for $385. Not sure if it was a good price or not, but they are going in this years race motor non-the-less.

Aluminum is expensive these days! Remember when the aluminum Moroso valve covers were less than the chrome ones? Now they are twice as much!

The ones I want are fabricated aluminum, and they are real expensive, like around $230 a set worth of expensive. But they look cool, have lots of room for a stud girdle, and they have recessed allen head bolts in the top of the valve cover to hold them on instead of clear down at the bottom. Would make getting to that bottom center one alot easier. (da** shock tower is in the way).

But they are not a "necassity" so they will hafta wait
