Originally was just going to get m-tuned rods but when i found out that removing stock pistons from the block to fit forged rods the rings wont seal properly as before which means getting a hone and new rings fitted so thought may as well get forged pistons if iam doing all that work!!!
So now looking at pistons and rods.
Iam stock bore 83mm.......should I go for 83.5 or 84mm pistons first of all?
Iam thinking if i go to 84mm and something ***** up then iam at max capacity on standard headgasket or just take the plunge and go to 84mm straight away?
8.6:1 or 9:1 compression ratio?Iam planning to run a gt2871r and aiming for 270 rwhp.
what ive seen so far is m-tuned rods and supertech pistons from 949 racing $731 combined. These seem popular the 83.5mm is 8.6:1.....if I go 84mm i can have option of 8.6:1 or 9:1.
Flyinmiata pistons at $796 and rods at $875
Begi wiseco pistons at $600 and rods at $427
then i found this website with more options http://stores.ebay.com/Real-Street-P...=p4634.c0.m322
has JE, Wiseco, Cp piston rod kits.
Cp is $810, Wiseco $780, Je $840.
engine wise is a 96 1.8 with 99 cyl head ready to go on I dont think there will be any valve clearance issues with any of the pistons??????
