It is my understanding that it applied to Gen 1 pistons as they were breaking lands. Whether it applied only to certain years of castings, I do not know. It was enough of an issue for them to change the design. As soon as the Gen 2 pistons were available they changed the P# and the Gen 1 pistons were no longer available. Then in early 09 they changed them or the rings again. I have not had need to nor seen or compared those to the previous generations as by then had gone to the forged 685..
