You'll get more power if you use the pistons from a v6, just make sure to stuff all of them in there.

I'm pretty sure the bore on an s10 is bigger than the bore spacing on a busa......

Can Busa pistons be put in a Chevy S10 block? (I know they can easily fit in the cab or bed).

Its more than just diameter. Its weight, wrist pin size, skirt length, ring spacing, rod length. I wouldnt even bother trying to find piston specs to compare.

I see that I should have been more descriptive. I thought the question was a little more obvious as to the directions the answers would go.

I've got a guy trying to sell me his Busa. Said he had a lot of work done to it. He claims he had the pistons taken out and "the engine was refitted with S10 pistons" for more power.

I was wondering if any of you ever heard of someone making this kind of mod to a bike engine. Any bike for that matter. Is this something that some guys do, perhaps to drag bikes or something, or is he blowing smoke up my skirt?

It's bullshit.
Car pistons and high performance motorcycle pistons are amazingly different.
A Hayabusa motor will Rev to well over 10,000 rpm and the pistons are designed to take that. A chevy S10 would explode long before it got there.

I can't say that it would be out of the realm of possibility nor do I care to find out. Bottom line is if a broke modded his "performance application" with truck pistons instead of purchasing a set of pistons made for that intended purchase then I wouldn't waste my money buying any POS from them.

S10 pistons dont mean anything as far as I can tell. Who the would just swap pistons without going larger bore also? Im pretty sure I would pass if he cant be more descriptive. I would probably pass anyway

Ask for a build sheet or parts receipts...chances are the seller will STFU with a quickness.

All of the above are good stuff. That's what I was hoping for and I'm thinking - How would he know how to get better performance by doing this vs 10,000 Japanese engineers that have spent over a decade building this engine. He sells tires........

Maybe I could talk him way down and part it out...
