    On `88 dohc zc, I am going to rebuild the bottom end. And I am going turbo, goal probably 250 range. Should I keep the same pistons I have, if thier in good shape, and keep the same compression, or do you guys think I should lower it a bit?

    tuning is far more important than compression

    Just stay at 9:1 and tune tune tune. 250whp is easy on a DOHC ZC if you've swapped in forged pistons and rods.

    Give ImportBuilders a call and see if they have something that fits. I'm sure Jeff will have something.
