    I run 12.8:1 on 93 octane. Talk to either Jeff @ ImportBuilders (linked in my signature) or some of the other reputable piston manufacturers out there. I'm running IB pistons in my engine right now, and they're wonderful.

    look on the ib website and like the pistons. now i'm kind of new to bottom end work but with the helm i can do this. when i get theblock back from being sleeved i plan on using stock crank. i already sent it out to be polished and checked out. if it is bored to 84mm do i order crv high compression pistons? which rods do i use meaning gsr lenght or crv? and arp studs the right thing to do? really want this car in the 13's. full interior gsr. is there a 84mm piston that will give me 11.5.1 . skunk 2 valves boosted compression .2 thanks for the help guys

    Don't get the Skunk2 Valves, if you need new valves look into ITR or Ferrera. I have the Skunk2 valves and I have to lash them about weekly to keep them from making a serious racket.

    I haven't figured out why yet (almost afraid to) but they are loud because they come out of adjustment very quickly, go set your valve lash and I bet you will find one or two that are way out of spec.
