If you have a 2.4 L you may be ok since the pistons are dished to prevent damage due to an out of time condition. "Cast aluminum, single-size pistons have pop-up tops with valve cut outs allows broken-belt valve clearance. Piston pins are held in place by press fit to the connecting rods, which differ from those in the 2.0 liter engine only in length." see: Good luck, br1ght
