Default sold: 8.6:1 Supertech Pistons

New/unused 4032 alloy, 8.6:1 static compression, with rings and wristpins. These are the same pistons Belfab sells. I bought them up quick, but I'm not going to make enough boost to utilize the benefits of lower compression. I'll gladly exchange them for a 9.0:1 piston.

They are $440 new, so I'll say $400 OBO.

I'll consider interesting trades +/- cash for an NA trailer hitch, tire trailer, light wheels, 6-speed, 3.90 ring...or maybe something interesting.

I'm a federal employee, and they look down upon mail fraud, so you can be certain that I'll send you a product when you send me money.

Dude, install these in your car. Maybe ceramic coat the domes or skim the head if you want a small CR bump. And be happy.

83.5mm

$13 to ship. I can take pics and pose with them when I get home tonight if you like. I'm 90% sure that I'm moving to Santa Fe, so I'll need all the compression I can get at 7200' elevation.

1.8. I don't think an 83.5 will fit in a 1.6.

I think you'd be better off pushing more boost up here, I don't think the higher compression would give you a noticably better low end. I'm all up for being proven wrong though.
