Rick's 1st 5.7 Hemi to play with

Picked this up last night,
07 300C 5.7 short block, dropped 2 valves but the bore still feels goods, light scratches should clean with a .020 bore.

Rick, you are about to becoming an addiction. The cure is expensive and takes a lot of your time looking through catalogs and Web sites.
Better just load that old block back in the truck and swing down to Virginia and drop it off at my place. I'll put down my catalog and we can go to lunch...

Nice find. An alternative is a drop in forge kit if the block is in good condition.

That's a lot of reading to go thru ........
my plan as today is to go .020-.030 over and aim for about 10-11 to 1 compression.
Any suggestions on Piston manufactures , trying to avoid stroking this engine, Heads are just going to get a polish and light porting, I just want to clean up the valve guide stems. might put oversize exhaust valve in, but I've had a hard time find 1.6 valve with stock length , seams the only real option is a 1.575

Wisco pistons for great street/track performance. Good for up to 700hp(12-14psi boost max).

Wiseco Pistons

CP pistons good for up to 1000hp(20psi boost) for street/track performance.

Blown Gen III Hemi: Centrifugal Wind

Probe pistons are a great choice too.

I don't recommend diamond pistons.....
