Most places should sell them. CHeck the ACL website might have a dealer listing. I know Repco sell them, but they're retail prices are a joke. If your not in a hurry send me a PM and I'll see what price I can do them for (but they'd be postage on top).

They would be around $1200 .. maybe less ?? But they are one of the BEST pistons you can buy... You can also use the aftermarket XR6T rod ..
Being custom they are made to fit at same price.. They run closser clearances compared to other forged pistons.. Helps ring seal etc....
The ACL race series are high compression. Unless they have specially made low comps...
The C.P's come with rings... Pick what ever compression you want...
Also fully floating pin...
