Forged Pistons..... JE or Wossner

So I am going to be building the motor for my 2000 Viggen and will be swapping in a set of forged pistons. Now I have the option for JE or Wossner pistons. They both are about the same cost, but I want to know what people opinions/ experiences with each are? Why they chose one over the other? I hope that this tread will help me and other people out with the same question.
Thanks

They're usually in stock, so it's not a special order piston like JE

they are less expensive

they are lighter

wrist pin has a better design

can get them in more bore sizes

you don't have to pay extra for the skirt coating like JE

I sell them :P

Wossner. Used both JE and Wossner in similar applications. I agree with what grkguy said... I would only go with JE MAYBE if I was shooting for 800+bhp... Otherwise I recommend Wossners. And I do not sell them nor have any affiliation with them, they just make a great product ^_^.

I have had both as well. I only starting dealing for them after I bought my first set and saw the quality

Looks like Wossners it is. 93Viggen why do you say that you would only go with JE if you were shooting for big power?

Because JE has been tested at huge power output levels... Not only Saab's but in tons of race cars... I know that the Eeurotuner Saab ran them, as well as all Nicks cars. But, on the other hand John Williams runs Wossners in his drag car (if I recall correctly), I know he sells them.

I am talking like a lot more power than is useable in these cars!

I have Wossners in my 9000 aero (4years now). Im at 400whp and 420ft/lbs. They broke in beautifully and iv'e been very happy with them. Go them for less than JE's price. My friend has been running them in his DD Viggen for 5 years. He beats on it and has had no issues.
