ls3 pistons in l99

Anyone made this change for a bit more compression.? May be going in to check, change piston rings soon. May change l99 to ls3 pistons if its possible.

It would be alot easier and less expensive to just have the heads milled for the desired compression.

to answer your question, Yes they will work, only difference is the ls3 is flat top and l99 has valve releifs. Same bore size and same rings.

Id keep the l99s to give you more exhaust valve clearance and just mill heads.

Yup!! Best thing to do. If your willing to swap pistons swap to a forged one not another hyperexplosive piston. Just saying.

I think, and I could be wrong, but I was quoted somewhere around $150 to mill the heads. Since the porting had already been done.

Thats good because thats alot less inexpensive and easier than new pistons.
