  1. To provide you with a description identifying pistons precisely you need to define what Dodge Challenger engine you have. Do you parameters of just the pistons? What about the piston rings or piston pins?

    These are the piston specifications as outlined by the 2011 Dodge Challenger 5.7-liter 8-cylinder 348 CID factory service manual.
