Piston

8hspace.gif (810 bytes)All pistons used in Camaro V8 engines used slipper type skirts, and all used pressed fit wristpins, with the exception of 1969 Z/28 320 engines and aluminum 427 ZL1 engines which used a full floating pin setup. All pistons were made of either cast alloy aluminum (C) or impact extruded alloy aluminum (IE).
