I'm going to shoot for at least 18psi on these babies. Hell, at least they're dished for lower compression.

Did you have any trouble putting the wrist pins? Specifically did you have to heat them?

Ummm... look at the pistons again. lol

But by the way, the correct (Mazda OEM) pins fit just right in the bushing.

Yes, they fit just fine. They were a little resistant at first, but I put a little oil on the surface and it went right in. (That's what she said.)
And I'm guessing it's ok to reuse the OEM wrist pin, but I'm going to let the machine shop that does the build decide.

Those conrods are like cankles on a skinny chick, built to hold a lot more than what they got on them.
