    ok quick question can a car (civic d16) be driven after having put lower compression pistons in without the forced induction or nitrous...reason i ask is will i be able to drive my car, after getting the block notched for my rods and pistons put in, to the shop i will be working on them in...bout 19 miles away a 30 minute drive (backroads)...without damaging the engine or the ecu...can't notch it myself and i could get it towed on a dolley to the shop if i need to....i know there will be serious power loss just wondering about damage

    Blanco is making decent power on a low compression motor w/o FI/nitrous, i think it'd be alright to drive there

    No damage, don't worry. You'll be fine on the lower compression.
