I found someone local selling a EMPI 92mm P/C set, made in 2012. The EMPI part number is 98-1992-B. They look to be Brazilian made with forged pistons. There is a product code of K70371 from the manufacturer. Does anyone out there know anything about these, how good they may be (especially compared to what's currently on the market)? I hadn't planned on going to that big of a bore, but if these are something good I may consider them.
Thanks!!

Sounds like cima/mahle. Do you have the box? Pic of the spec label would help. What is his price. Are they a stroker set? They are very good quality.

I have a picture of the labels on the box, that's where I got the part numbers from. They are 69 x 92.
If anyone is interested, I could put you in touch with him. He is located in Easton PA
I took another look at the picture, Mahle is written all over it (literally...LOL)

I'm sure they are the standard wall 92's
