visibly may, look scored..But feel with your finger..Should be completely smooth, if not, then there is a problem.

If you do have a scuffed piston what problems will it cause? Lose low end? Top end? Bad fuel milage? Just curious if you would know without looking. Also could a piston scuff on backside so you would never see marks looking through ports?

The first thing you would notice if you kept driving on a suffed piston is the motor getting noisier. I'm sure if you drove it long enough you would eventually break the skirt off the piston.

:D Don't be alarmed if the piston looks black. apparently they have a coating on them which will wear away with time. Pulled my pipe off today ( I'm doing this all the time :wacko: looking for trouble??? :wacko: ) and at 2450 miles it looks fantastic in there, in fact the piston rings seem to be seating better with less visible blow by and and no scuffing or carbon-soot build up. Compression has gone up from 135 to 137-140. :wub:
