Scott from Hillside has a FIX for the problem with the S&S 106" that includes new dome top pistons. He (Scott) has been very helpful. I will let you guys know how it turns out and will post my a copy of DNYO results as well.
I just heard from S&S tonight on this issue and they acknowledged "having problems" with these top end kits.....so far they have not offered me a refund.

I sure hope they aren't. I was pretty bummed when I called S&S and asked if their lifters are USA made......I was told that "some of them are sourced from Mexico". No thanks. Will likely go with Woods.

Default S&S

Update: S&S has shipped a new top new kit to my dealer and they offered to pay the installation costs. Great customer service IMO, so I'm going to give their 106" another chance. I'm curious what it's going to do on DYNO as compared to previous.

Nothing like some down home customer service. I hope all ends well.
