    Alright, so I am going to have an all-motor LS engine in my civic, thats what I want so no changing my mind. With that said, I am wondering if there is a "BEST" piston for this application. I want them to be 11:1 Comp. Ratio if that makes a difference. I need to know brand and style of manufaturing ( cast, forged, whatever). Let me know guys, thanx.

    personally i would just throw some JDM ITR pistons in there. although they are cast, they are great for all motor applications. as well they are cheap (compared to aftermarket pistons) and will give you your desired CR.

    ** CTRs will put you higher .... i think close to 12:1 ... not too sure ... but i know they will make you higher than the ITRs

    JE pistons, cost more than the jdm pistons but I think are worth it.
