i need a new engine for my eb, i was planning on it having flat top pistons and a stage 2 crow cam. some problems i am having are aparently i cant get flat tops, but i can get semi flat tops (leave room for valves) from a company called race series, however these are designed for an el/ef, iv been told that when i get the engine bored out if i get it done extra 20 thou they will have no probs. also is there enything i may have forgotten that i will need to build up this engine. and if there will be no problems with these pistons and a stage 2 cam will i need to do anything to my chip or injectors or will it run fine (other than a realy beefy sounding idol)

how did you manage to get 4.3L there is not enough metal in the cylinder walls to get it with only a rebore. and as far as i know you can't stroke the 4L
