Bad design IMO pistons are heavier than the LB7/LLY yet weaker over the wrist pin..
I've split piston with less than 300hp, and seen blocks with stock power split pistons..
Biggest thing I'd say is oil temp, hot metal is weaker than cold metal.
As the lbz/LMM pistons last almost 3x longer at 400 HP with an aux oil cooler vs no aux oil and less than 300hp
Between my two tow pigs
Either mahle race cast round bowl or fingers ovals can't go wrong with either

Bore n balance deck and main will set you back ~4500.00 in parts roughly if you hose LML head bolts, new bearings and gaskets
Obviously labor will increase that's drastically
