I think it should be alright considering they sell and use the piston like the way i made mine with no problems.. In fact I made mine on the small side , figure i can always take off more but you cant add...!
I also countersunk the oiling holes on the piston wristpin area and the 3 oil holes on top of connecting rod to aid in the lubricating factor,,
The only way to realy lighten the piston on the exhaust side would be to remove some metal from inside the piston skirt.. I have heard and seen pistons with a lot of the skirt hacked off and I dont like it, plus i think you would get a lot of piston slapping.. IDK overall I think on my application that I will just leave it be, dont think that it will take away performance but hopefully add some,,
Maybe some one smarter then me out there like JAG, Steve Best or Frankenstien, or KC Cruiser can explain what actually happens with the window in piston and what measurments are best in making one,, I took a picture of ZEDA's Windowed piston that they sell and just blew it up to actuall size and got my measurments that way for the top and bottom and I marked the sides thru the intake port. and drilled my for 3/8 radius holes and then dremeled the rest.. Some people say that you dont see it so it dont got to look good,,, I say bull crap on that,, i think it looking good and being accurate is a must when it comes to engine work,,, never be a butcher hack when it comes to metal fabrication,, I am a AVIATION MACHINIST by Trade so I know what close tolerance is, I would sometimes make R&D PROJECTS with DARPA and MIT and ITT at the NAVAL BASE and holding tolerances of .003 ,, so i am also meticulas and anal in things I Creat or Modify as you can see..View attachment 78848 View attachment 78849
