Default Is that a good price?


When I got into modding, I said to myself "I don't wanna deal with the engine."

Yeah. Right. Nevermind the burned valve, now, I gotta bore out the cylinders.
So, questions.

Just under $200 for a set of 20mm over pistons, rings, standard main bearings and thrust washers. Shipped.

According to my supplier, partsmatrix, this is coming from his engine builder (and the rings that I got from him before were NPR).

The engine is 1.6L. Lowered compression (8.5, I think(, and, once I've broken it in, turbo back on.

Is that a good price?
Oh, and how will this affect overall volume and compression?

You want a 1.8. Its too bad my brakes were gone or I could have taken you for a drive and shown you why you want the extra displacement.
