it will be street strip front mount and everything else is somewhat hazy im just trying to plan a little before i get to deep in rebuilding my engine. evo pistons sound very nice but i dont know if they are worth it.
8.5-9:1 compression is optimal for street use. Great turbo spoolup and no over heating problems. Go ROSS, Venoila, Weisco and be happy forever. I also highly recommend Total Seal rings. TNOMUD is running 10:1 from what I remember, and he occasionally has too much heat buildup for street use. -Ian
Besides Forged (Ross, Venoila, etc.) vs. cast (EVO & Stock), the Ross's and Venoilas come with ceramic coatings and other bells and whistles that Mitsu pistons will not. I recommend calling Extreme or TurboTrix and discussing piston options with them. Jeff Hill (TurboTrix) was the most informative in my decision, and they are having a sale on Ross pistons this month. Good luck. -Ian
Stock 2G pistons can handle quite a bit of boost / power. You can run consistent, reliable low 11's with 2G pistons. Unless you're planning an all out drag car or have the extra money for 'peace of mind' forged pistons are not necessary. I just finished my rebuild with 2G pistons, I'm also running a FP Green.
