ITM is a pretty well known brand on this forum. If this is a stock rebuild, those pistons will be fine. If you're pushing more than 300whp then you might be in trouble. If you rev it higher than 7k you're also going to have a bad time.

Pistons are fine but swap to better rings.

Ive been using the itm dished pistons with the rings that came with them since 2010 running 15 psi boost for the first 5 years and 20 psi since 2015. No problems yet. Just keep detonation under control. I've blown head gaskets and broke a ring land on the stock piston at less boost but was obviously having detonation issues at the time.
