Default 2.1 Stroker pistons

Ok so I did some research but came to no avail. I'm starting a 2.1 stroker build but I'm stumped on which pistons to get. I've read that the wiseco's are noisy but want to know what other are running and how they been running so far.
Thanks in advance guys/gals

Watch your piston to wall clearance. Both are offset wrist pins. The 2.1L Stroker wiseco vs the Manley was quieter from our experience. IIRC the wiseco had a longer shirt compared to the Manley.

Yes, keeps the piston from rocking; slapping.

If you're looking for quiet, you may want to look at the mahle 4032 pistons.
Guess it depends on what power level you are wanting.

Hmmmm how do these do performance wise? They as strong as the Manley or wiseco? I did some research and found that the mahle stroker pistons has a compression ratio if 8:1:1 vs the others are 8:5:1

I have used several different brands of pistons, only one brand of 2.1L though. If you are not planning on making mega power I cannot recommend Mahle enough. the 4032 Alloy allows you to run 1 .0025-.003" PTW. Couple that with the skirt coating (which is thicker and better IMHO than what can be had on other brands pistons) and they are as quiet as stock. I have used standard 2.5L and 2.1L Mahles and loved the results. I have had good results with other brands at the expense of slightly more noise. Also Mahle comes with excellent rings that in my experience have seated quickly and consumed little to no oil

Are they pretty strong pistons though? I plan on pushing 22psi and maybe 24psi with my ported vf48. Plan on hitting 350whp

I think you are going to need more turbo than that to hit 350whp. I was told that a 18gxt would do it

I would be comfortable with 350whp if I was comfortable with the tuner.
