    I'm not worried about budget, but which pistons should i get for my JDM B18C GSR?

    Set of PCT CTR or JDM ITR P73 00?

    They will be ran with CTR cams, JG IM, gredder header and chipped P28

    It depends on what cams you plan on running.

    You can't just pick a high CR piston and run stock cams.

    ctr pistons will give you more compression and more power. I would not get the jg intake manifold it will make you lose power, it is more geared toward forced induction. Just get an itr intake manifold, or skunk2.

    I do not believe the ITRs will work in a GSR motor, I know for sure they will not fit in a GS. So I say go with the CTRs.

    GS LS RS whatever, you gotta shave 1 mm off the small end of the rod to fit. GSR Type R is a direct bolt.

    Well thanks guys, here we go with the CTR pistons.

    i have 12.3:1 CR pistons in basically a stock type R motor, you need cams to match to really make power with the compression. i only made 180whp btw.

    Stock cranking pressure on a JDM B18C1 is 186.37 PSI

    With CTR cams and CTR pistons its 241.53 PSI

    That's over a 33% increase in cranking pressure / dynamic compression over stock. That hideously undercaming your engine.

    You won't make more power.
