    anyone have exp with these pistons? nippon racing which i know has been making parts for honda for a very long time now. price is awesome for someone like me on a budget and not able to buy every high dollar part out there and if they perform up to oem why not.

    Real one's aren't much more than that...I would NEVER skimp on something like pistons. They're $200 from InlineWhore, and I'm SURE they're cheaper elsewhere (might try JHP, I know they sell shit a lot cheaper than inline 4).

    i was using those as an example, i will be using p30's which are a little harder to find for me anyway.

    i dont see how they would be much different than honda pistons but im still curious if anyone has used them yet.

    i would never order from jhp, crappy customer support.

    bump i want some others opinions

    spend a couple hundred more on some GOOD aftermarket parts, and you will be happy. I haven't heard anything bad about nippon. I'd just take them to a machine shop and make sure they were balanced before putting them in my car, that is going to be your only problem with a piston like that. The rings are decent rings, so you shouldn't have any sealing problems as long as the cylinders are honed, annd the rings are intalled correctly. I went custom cp, but they cost me 450 bones. well about 500 including some extra goodies, but you get my point.



    I believe this is true 99% of the time.
