    :shrug:

    You should check the threads on Honda-Tech by TurboPanda and make sure that they're the right brand of piston.

    Yes and no. The Vitara pistons that everyone likes to use are not the OEM pistons. They're an aftermarket piston with a different aluminum composition than stock.

    the YCP Vitara Pistons on ebay are legit - I have those exact same pistons in my trubo d16z6. I am have been running 14psi on a T28 turbo for 2 years now and have had no problems what so ever. although, I do have the S200 and its tuned. that makes the world of difference.
