You have passed into the realm of making things up. They aren't the
exact same engine parts. You have no idea of the design tolerances.
For all you know, there were secondary operations involved after your
friends' CNC machine did it part of the process. You have no facts,
just a half assed tail from a guy who was pissed that some engineer
told how him to do his job. If the Japanese are so great at getting
"tight tolerances" right, why do so many Tundra V-8 exhibit piston
slap? Are "excessively tight" tolerance the reason a Toyota starter
for my old Cressida cost $500 when a similar starter for a US car got
less than $100? Are those "excessively tight" tolerances the reasons
the jump seats on my Frontier keep falling down? Or maybe the
"excessively tight" tolerances is why so many Toyotas had problems
with rotten egg smells from the exhaust.

I'm not making ANYTHING up. Pistons at this factory, pistons at that
factory. Engine blocks here, engine blocks there.

It may help for you to eliminate faith from your thinking on these issues.

I said you were making things up ecasue you said " the exact same
engine parts." They are not the exact same engine parts.

Chrysler doesn't make pistons at all. They buy them, jsut like Ford,
GM, and Toyota (althoguh Toyota probably owns 51% of the company
making their pistons).
