Default Help my Identify these Pistons and Cylinders

I had purchased a small lot of RC parts and these were included. How can I tell what motor they are from.

They all have turbo buttons with a four bolt pattern

Thanks for reading my post.

The conneting rod looks like Novarossi. The cuts are deffinately hand made and sloppy. I've never see the bottom of the sleve cut on a bias like that also. I wouldn't touch those sleves. Four bolt head button also sounds like a Novarossi based motor.

these look like some one copying mod i have seen the skirt of the sleeve raised before but when you do it you also have toraise the skkirt of the piston it allows more air in to the motor and creates more power i do have afeeling that the person whodid this didn't know why it was done or they would have done it correctly

The pistons are all used and look like they have been abused.
