Default WTB: Stock 99 9.5:1CR or 2001 10:1CR pistons SORTED

Hi, If one of you guys with big built engines and low CR forged pistons would like to get rid of your stock items please let me know. I've got a NA project on the go that could use a little more than the 94 9:1 pistons I'm currently using.

Thanks

Tom

how urgently you need them? I've got a spare 01 motor with used pistons in it. they look good from the top.

Zabac, is the MSM the same bore as a normal 1.8? and how much would PnP be to the UK?

Y8s, I'm in no rush so it sounds good. Make me an offer I cannot understand let alone refuse Am I correct in thinking that the 01 has 10:1 with the VVT? Or has solomiata lead me astray?

Thanks for the replys

Tom

USPS Priority mail based on 5 lbs $39.50. Four lbs $36.25 to give you an idea.

I would love to find them locally but it just ain't gonna happen. Its taken me over a year to find a 99 head! I'll have a look at snail mail to the UK, like I say I'm in no mad rush for them, I still have to prep & port the head and make a whole new inlet manifold from scratch. How much $$ am I looking at for the pistons?

Thanks

Tom

Edit: if the box is 4lbs or under then it can go Priority MailŪ International Small Flat-Rate Box for $12.95 or am I being unrealistic about the weight?

The small flat rate box is big enough for a VHS tape, but not pistons.
