what pistons and rods are you guys running for forced induction setups?

I'm new to the Mazda scene, if this was a honda, I wouldnt have a problem.

Its a 1.6

also, whats the bore x stroke on a 1.6 and on a 1.8?

TIA Diego

The stock 1.6L is a great engine for mild boost in it's stock form. The 1.8 isn't so bad either.. What do you plan on doing?

well, as it sits right now. my engine sounds like a diesel, there is some piston slap going on in there, I think the rings are just about done. so we're pulling out the bottom end, punching it 25 over and I'm reassembling it with some rods and pistons. I just need to check my options to whats available.

the motor is going to be boosted soon enough, I just need to get this out of the way while I can still daily my integra.

Maybe they are running an old semi turbo... :eek:

FYI, FM offers 9:1 pistons for boosted setups and 11:1 for N/A:

FYI, the name is Carrillo, not Carrilo: http://www.carrilloind.com/

IMHO:

Pauter rods are better than Carrillo: http://www.pauter.com/

CP pistons are better than Wiseco: http://www.cppistons.com/
D'OH! Just past the nick of time. I have an engine being built using Carrillo and Weisco. #-o

I've always heard of CP pistons expanding from high-heat levels, where Wiseco's don't. Is that correct or am I confusing the 2?
