    Hy guys, I wonder if you can give me some advice about what pistons to buy. I'm trying to get more power from my B16A2 engine. I'm going to list what I recently bought and I'm planning to use in my stock engine:

    - Buddy Club Spec III plus cams
    - Unorthodox Cam Gears (Tuner Series)
    - Skunk2 valve springs and titanium retainers
    - Ferrea valve guides and valve seals
    - Buddy Club 0.5 head gasket
    - ITR P73 ECU

    Well, I recently bought all these parts but my builder said that it would be great if I get a kit of CTR pistons to increase the compression. My question is: Should I get the OEM CTR pistons or the Nippon Racing CTR pistons. I didn't know about Nippon Racing untill I found a store in Ebay selling them for a very good deal, US$ 159.99 including gas nitrite coated rings, steel pins and shipping (Item 180299302469). The seller told me that they are the same as OEM CTR pistons but these are made with better materials. I wasn't sure, the price is so good that I'm not confident... On the other hand, I found OEM CTR pistons and rings in another store for US$ 300.

    What do you think? do you recommend them?

    Thanks fo your advice.
