Most of us in the UK use JE Pistons. 89mm does run the risk of cracking the block after a while but I think thats only been an issue on race engines - I've cracked two blocks at 89mm. Current engine we are building up will be 88mm (and standard stroke).

Adie at AHM may have stock, and if not can certainly order them in for you.
