    Mahle makes a compatible piston, but most people sleeve so they can use forged pistons.

    Total truth above. Jun also makes pistons that work in the H22, but if you live in the US, go with Mahle, much easier to get and very similar performance.

    If you wanna use JE or some other piston in the H22, you will DEFINITELY need to have the block sleeved.

    You can probably get some MID sleeves installed for around 1200-1500 bucks assuming you're using someone you've never used before.

    Press in sleeves are gonna be a bit cheaper in the around 800-1k range.
