    I tried that number 12669126 and it shows good as you already know for the 14/15 but when you change to 16 it says does not fit and using the same site doesnt come up with a complete engine for 16.

    I thought they were the same as the 2016...
    I think they went to tempered glass pistons for 2016+ versus regular glass on the 2014 and 2015 models.

    What happened to the quality control @ GM, to eliminate forged aluminum pistons being standard for boosted engines? Bone heads,
    meat/heads, imported engines are ruining the reputation of BuicK!
