    So I stumbled upon this piston/rod combo

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/152776634526

    I know the scat Rods are decent but I have no idea npr made full floating pistons. Anybody have feedback on the pistons? I'm currently at 400awhp and will be staying there for awhile. I'm sure my motor is shot so I'm exploring my Options. Or should I save another 300 bucks and get some standard Wiseco or Manley pistons?

    If you have extra budget then I strongly recommend you to go with standard set such as CP, JE, Wiseco, Manley, Eagle or so.
    PLEASE be careful that the piston kit in the link is NOT NPR. "Nippon Racing" is not "NPR". NPR = Nippon Piston Ring. (Nippon means Japan in Japanese)
    Nippon racing is an eBay brand that appeared about 10 years ago or so, and Made in China, even the box shows "Made in Japan" and written in Japanese... They have been pretending being Japanese company and tricking you. I even wonder if the scat rods and the NPR ring set are genuine.
    I am not saying the kit quality is bad because I have no personal experience with it. Who knows maybe works great but I am just saying the truth that I know. And if I were you I wouldn't.

    Idk that seems a bit spendy, though stock style pistons aren't the week point, so maybe they'd be alright. I've run the Nippon racing pistons in other stuff and never had a problem, but none were turbocharged.

    Long as your tune is safe I bet they'd do alright.

    I had never seen a Nippon full floating piston stock style. Both of my sets were/are press fit, BUT they are NPR sets, which I see are different than Nippon.

    Any of you order their gasket kit? I did. Couldn't even tell a difference from their HG and an OEM mls.
