I'll get a price together and PM you with it.

With the horsepower and rpm levels you're at, I think a "fancier" wrist pin than normal would be prudent.

On my vacuum pump engines, I will normally run .0015-.002" wrist pin clearance as well.

At least a .180 wall pin to combat pin flex at 8,000 rpm
