I took my late 71 model AMC 360 appart to find that I need new pistons. What are some good pistons that are just as good or better than what came in it? The engine won’t see anything past 6000RPM.

I have a new set of Sealed Power cast .030 pistons if interested.  Somewhere in the for sale section if you dig around.

Well that 6000 RPM is the edge number. Have a read and decide for yourself (the article has pop up adds but can be closed):

I used Wiseco pistons in my 360 with reconditioned factory rods. I think my pistons were a little over 400.00 with pins and rings included. In my opinion there was no sense in going with a cast piston when there was a decent forged set available for a few bucks more. Especially when you factor in the increased compression you can get from them. My engine guy was definitely impressed with the quality of them and they were substantially lighter than the cast pistons that were in it.

Not that you or anyone else should do it, but just so the info is there, don't know about now, but in the past on the Egge web page and catalog, some AMC Pistons are listed under RAMBLER not AMC and they do not show up under AMC only under RAMBLER like the 343 pistons they offer for sale.

I have used a few sets of these.  9.5:1 compression ratio with a 58cc head makes it nice.

Hey Rick... Would this CR require regular, mid grade or premium?
