    :p wuts good guys......ok so my answer has yet to be answerd yet......i am rebuilding my d16a6...i have all new seals......i also have p2p pistons ( brand new) and low mile p28 pistons.....now if i am going to boost....like the daily drivin 6-8 psi.....should i swap to any of these sets or re ring the stock pm6 pistons....i herd that the vtec pistons lowers your compression and a lil low compression is good for boost right?.....i am keeping this non-vtec so please no answers with the "MINI-ME" schpeil.......just need some info so i can drop these pistons in this weekend!!!...thanks guys! :mrgreen:

    Lower compression means easier to tune, higher compression means more power.

    Probably because an answer can't be answered! :p

    Well, your question is too vague. 6-8 psi means nothing. It depends on the turbo size. One turbo you can be fine at 6-8psi & another your engine will go kaboom. Be more descriptive, whats your power goals if any or do some more research. What size/kind turbo are you using & sorry, I don't know how high your CR will be...
