Default Pistons

For us guys with built engines, what Piston/connecting rod combo are you running, and why?

I've always heard and seen probe pistons doing a fine fob of handling just about anything you can throw at them. That's why I went with them for my engine build up. I run Probe Ultralight forged rods and pistons.

ive heard of quite a few people just running 03/04 cobra rods with a nice forged piston. seems to do the trick for most.

It seems like Manley H-beams and CP/Probe/Mahle Pistons are the norm for OHC motors.
