    Just what the title says i got an ls motor, i may have to replace the pistons in so i was wondering if a stock ls ecu could handle the major bump in compression that comes with usdm b16 pistons.

    It should, you will just have to run premium gas. Can you get 91 in WY?

    As long as you use B16 piston return springs. The LS piston return springs won't hold up.
