I don't understand the point of doing all the work and expense of machine work, rods, bearings, gaskets, and skimping on the pistons. I'm glad they do seem to work, but i'd rather spend a extra $200 for a proven 1000+whp piston if going through all the work.

^x2 and i dont under stand why you would do all this to make ~500whp we have quite a few bseries making more than that and there 100% stock short blocks
just find a good tuner

Is Nipon still good?
Any fresh news?
Many are using these pistons now?

We use them all the time. They are kickass pistons as long as your using them within there hp rating of 500hp.

I use CP on my engine, now the power is 430 horsepower at 1 bar. boost.
I build a spare engine for everyday use, like a family car, I donít want big P2Ws anymore. but I would like to leave the former power.
Can these pistons survive when the EGT exceeds 900 degrees Celsius?

Um?? That would depend on what your cylinder temps are!! Exhaust temps give you good data but there is a reason exhaust components are made from steel and the head/piston is made from alum.

900c exceeds the 700c'ish melting point of alum so not really a number that matters considering i can turn a steel exh manifold cherry red without making much hp.

Okay, put the question differently.
What usually do you see EGT at maximum load of their engines?
I want to know some statistics about those engines that are built with NIPON pistons.
