6.4L Piston Options

Just picked up a spare motor that I want to rebuild for my truck and it has a couple cylinder walls that need fixing. Whether I sleeve these or bore the whole motor over, what options do I have for pistons? Do any aftermarket companies make stock replacement pistons for the 6.4 yet? If I was going to get something equivalent to OEM I was hoping not to spend $900+, and I certainly don't need to spend $1500+ for forged. What are my options? Thanks in advance guys.....

Thanks but something tells me those are a fortune, I'm just looking for a stock replacement.

Don't think you have any "budget" options other than stock. A stock set of ceramic coated pistons should be pretty bullet proof.

I was afraid of that...I guess the aftermarket companies haven't gotten into an OEM replacement for the 6.4's yet?

We use factory replacements, they are also offered .020 over and then you could have them ceramic coated and be as bulletproof as you can get. We're running the .020 over with ceramic coating in the drag truck and hitting 1200hp.
