The pistons are hypertheuretic (spelling?) which means they are durable/long lasting, but they are some what brittle and do not tolerate detonation well... And due to emissions the rings are placed close to the top of the piston.. so you have this thin piece of brittle metal above the rings... under normal conditions they are fine and will last a very long time... but push them to hard and throw in some detonation and you will crack a piece off the piston... and then you are in trouble... i know... been there, done that...
