    i have a d16z6 turbo running 9psi 205bhp, i intend to up this further at a later date so my next job is going to be fitting some new rods and pistons, just trying to find some advice on what compression i should look at running with the new pistons and any advice on good brands, looking for about 270-300 eventually

    I am pretty happy with my 9.0:1 wiesco pistons and scat rod combo that I went with in my d16y8. The pistons are pretty high quality compared to others at the same price. The compression drop from stock does not give a noticeable power loss when I am not in boost.

    you got a decent fuel setup, so dropping your compression isn't a big deal. if you want to make power easy, go with a 9.8:1-10.0:1 piston. you'll spoll faster, have better off-boost response, and make more power per psi vs a lower compression.
