    First off, there's no way to tell what kind of power and torque you'll get from a custom setup. Go build it, dyno and let us know.

    ;)

    Educated guesses based on sketchy information, and assuming that "A8 head gasket" means "Y8 head gasket, the thin version":

    1. 11.44:1
    2. 13.09:1
    3. See #2... it's the highest you'll go with OEM parts.
    4. 9.45:1 = Y7 block/rods/crank, Z6 (P28) pistons, Z6/Y8 "thick" gasket, Y8 head

    If slightly over 13:1 compression is too high for you, try getting the 96-00 GX pistons. They'll yield 12.5:1 compression in the Y8 head.

    A direct replacement for the JDM DOHC ZC PM7 piston is the P29 from the USDM 88-89 Integra's DOHC D16 engine.
