Default Low compression piston recommendation

hey guys im currently in the process of gathering up parts for my new big bore low compression build. I already have the rods that i want in mind (eagle due to weight) and was wondering what manufacture and vendor you guys think offers the best piston design??

I plan on running big boost with 94 and meth and more timing then i run now (28deg @25psi)

It would be nice if i could grab whole kit from a vendor.
I have emailed 3 vendors and so far no reply back and its been over a week

Thanks boys

lots of opinions on this topic..
personally i go with the math (just a few builds under my belt )
search the build section for 8.8:1 e85 s3+ builds.. lots of happy customers

it all comes down to how much air and fuel/octane and temperature of the combustion Chambers ..

spend some time searching around

do you plan on running 60psi of boost ??? if your running meth and 94 i would suggest at least 9.0:1 comp what turbo r u gong to be running, manifolds, cams,ported head?
not to mention you can only add in so much timing befor you get no gains from it and at 28*is about where im at on stock comp and e85 before the built block
im currently in the processes of building a 10.0:1 comp 30+psi of boost monster that will eat e85

There is no reason to go that low in compression, have a good tuner tune the car and won't have issues.
