    The pistons on the right were some NOS 354 pistons I got on the cheap. In the end, I decided not to bore the engine, as the bores were nearly perfect. I sold the 354 pistons and ordered a set of 1955 331 pistons from Egge. The 55 331 had the highest compression of the 331s at 8.5. With heads milled .025 and some NOS Fitzgerald steel shim head gaskets, the compression blueprinted perfectly at tad over 9.2:1.
