    Aftermarket pistons

    Not sure if this should be in performance tech, or just plain tech;
    Anyways, i'm ordering some forged pistons because 2 of mine have busted. Arias is the only manufacturer i have found so far that makes pistons for the f22. My main question is that will these pistons fit bascially?

    I'm lookin at the 8.8 c/r f22 pistons. the difference in bore is what is confusing me, will i need my block bored or will these fit my stock block?

    I've never bought engine internals before, so if anyone has any recomendations on brands, or places to buy them, I'd appreiciate that help as well.

    dont even bother..boooooooooooooo

    hey go to race eng and order pistons there. they have 11:1 compression 85mm so you wont overbore. it still maybe cool do resleeve since your using forged pistons. oh and kteller has rods for 395 for f22 accord which is cheapest i found.

        go to flatlander then

        they have hypereutic pistons for like 159 a set and they are supposed to be
        30% percent stronger than stock pistons and 85mm bore maybe just what you need.

          I'm kinda torn here. I can get a set of oem pistons at a discount because my brother works for honda, and I'd be able to get them right away (this is my only car, i'm tired of borrowing cars) but I'm looking for something stronger. I may just save my building until I can pick up a second block and 5 speed tranny. Thanks for all your help guys.

            I would not put in pistons of the same stock bore, unless your current cylinder sleeves are in great shape. I would go with the 85.5mm bore pistons from www.raceng.com that are 8.8:1 if I were you. This gives you minimal bore on the sleeves for strength and still retains the stock compression ratio. Also, these pistons are stronger than stock for your turbo application.

            Installing forged pistons onto unbored/unhoned sleeve...is a no no in my opinion.

              what if your engine has under 40k on it? I was thinking since my engine is low mileage, it would be alright to do low comp pistons without doing anything else...

                i found some forged arais pistons that are 8.5;1 and 20 thousandths over (which i think would have to be bored to 85.5mm). they are what i am going to be running in my car, and the kteller rods for like 350...i am getting the whole set for about 800 bucks which isnt really that bad if u ask me.
