1. Their = possesive

2. There = naming a location

3. They're = they are

#1 is correct for your above sentence in which you attempted to correct your grammar. Thank you very much for trying (no sarcasm intended)

people used to do this on dsm's all the time, I think a stock 1g is 8.8:1, 2g is 9.5:1, so they'd run 1g rods, 2g pistons, best of both worlds.
