I Live in Oklahoma. I swapped the GTR engine into a 92 ford escort. Here is my current setup....

Full GTR harness adapted to NA harness
\ 4wire O2
Inj. resistor box
Knock control unit
460cc Injectors (low Imped.)
IHI VJ23 turbo
255 lpr fuel pump
Manual boost controller
Apexi Turbo Timer
Tokito SR struts
Large Bar and Plate IC generic
2.5" exhaust, no cat w\flowmaster
HKS SSQV BOV -real
8.5mm magnacore Plug wires
No Wideband as of yet, will come soon..
I am looking for pistons to replace the stock ones. GTR Pistons with rings are more expensive than the weisco set, at least as for ppl that I can them them from.
Now which set of forged pistons are worth it. Heat expansion from different materials and what not. I was running this thing on 17-20psi before oops. Also should my injectors have been bigger or what? Is so how big? I am not in the dark completely just looking for answers that are from a different community.
So speedtech? are they worth it? $425
JE pistons? even more expensive.
I don't want to have to do this again any time soon.
