be safe and use the 1 thin brass and 1 alum, call CEO, he should be able to tell you if you can run factory shimming or not, break it in with a P3, and if shimming needs to be less use a P6

ok, the timming may have been changed on the piston, which will allow a higher duration, so squish is important to get correct to get the bennifit of your P.S set if it was done this way. you can use calipars to measure both the stock and modded parts to see what may have or not have been done. i would shoot chris an email just to be safe.

Pretty much same as all the posts above.
Best bet is to get ahold of Chris and he will set you up with the needed info. He is not always the easiest to get a hold of though so keep trying.
