Default advice on witch pistons to buy???

I recently blew up what used to be my daily, turns out f22b1's with 310,00 miles on it don't really care for 15lbs of boost ,Haha. It shoulda cut at 11.2 but I guess it just didnt care that it spiked like that? So I wound up breakinng the ring lands on no. 2 I believe. Only has 45lbs of compression. Now I'm trying to decide wich pistons to buy that r strong enough without breaking the bank. Any suggestions? On thinkin rods also , its no longer a daily but a high horsepower project. Thanks for any imput!

Whatever it needs to be. ..... Once n done ....I'm sick of working on it. I want it reliable. Be nice to be able to have it safe enough to bounce of the rev limiter at will. Haha. I called wiseco n they'll make custom pistons for 588 , add 50 if I want them coated , rods would be next to think about. I may just make my own h beam set tho. I do custom maching for a living. Hence all the goodes I've already made.

Wiseco's a good choice; I've been thinking about Wiseco pistons and K1 rods for my Dart project whenever I need to rebuild the motor.
