    Need opinions experience on nippon racing ITR pistons. Blanco I think your using them for your build? Any thoughts, experiences? I need to go OS (.20 or .50) & looking into nippon.

    No experiences, but haven't heard anything bad about them. You can buy a set of JDM CTR pistons from Hmotors for under $200 shipped.

    Yea, I was trying to confirm their claims about superiority to oem.

    and so on...
    Was considering them because their supposedly cheaper & better quality but haven't really heard anything about them around the boards. So far, can't find ITR pistons OS for a good deal, only CTR's. My engine builder seems to think CTR's will be a bit much because he plans on milling the head quite a bit to take away some of the open quench pad area. (B16 head C1 block)
    Somewhere down the road if I decide to go turbo & swap out the pistons will milling the head a lot present a problem aside from the fact I might have to find some super low compression pistons.

    Hmm, just noticed a difference of the desciption between the ITR & CTR skirts. The CTR was above ^

    The ITR says:
    Both in the pictures have the black coating on the skirts. Hmm..any difference there?

    Considering that no one has touched this thread in three years, I doubt that the OP cares anymore...
