  4. Starting my own Diamond piston thread !!

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Diamond pistons for the 5.0L coyote, how good are they? Will have them in soon and ill also form my opinion on them. Power wise, how much can they withstand without popping under boost. Stock compression kept for max power, hope im doing this right.
