Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Are what's a good set pistons that will!!
.. So I'd suggest doing it all to stock format. I personally did CP pistons with Manley H beam rods.
If you're planning on using these in your 2G, you'd actually be better off using stronger rods with the stock pistons as the pistons are definitely NOT the weak link on that engine.
What shop do you work for? Agreed on all points except one. The Eagle and Manley are both forged. The Manley H beam is not billet. Even the Manley and Oliver I-beams which are advertised as billet are not. It's all marketing.
To the OP, think about saving some more $$ and getting a set of Manley or Eagle rods to go with the pistons. If you're pushing the limits of the stock pistons, or plan to in the future, you will appreciate the increased reliability of a set of good rods.
Got no compresion on cyl 3 got bad rings cars got 146,000 and stock bottom end with a 16 g
So I going pull my head tonight going see how it looks any small stuff I can do while i got it apart ?? Need some pointers not going for crazy power plan to run 15 psi Daliy
I'm going to disagree with you on CP pistons being the best (for a 4G63 at least).
Have you ever read this thread?
To the OP, if you're only planning on running 15psi don't even waste your time with forged pistons. Buy a set of NPR cheapo OEM replacements off eBay or parts dinosaur and do a standard stock rebuild. The stock sh** is going to put up with whatever you throw at it with only 15psi of boost. Or see if you can find a decent stock bottom end 6 bolt for cheap and swap it in.
Sorry for the noob question, but does this mean that you can slap an
FP 68HTA turbo on your DSM and keep it at/below 15psi without putting forged pistons, rods, etc. on?
You absolutely could. Stock internals are extremely strong, I can't think of a single turbo that could surpass the limits of the stock engine's rods and pistons at 15psi, .
