Default Shorter Pistons

Has anyone heard of getting shorter pistons to give more hp?

Thanx for the link. Ok so the shorter you go, the more friction. The longer you go the more it dwells at the top and the bottom of the stroke. I'll pass this info along.

lol, yeah that's what i thought. After i asked the guys over at the crew and read that Camero forum, that's what it sounds like. more friction leads to a seized engine. I told him not to do it unless he gets a turbo or a supercharger.
