Pistons, pistons, pistons! The stock ZC pistons are shit! Get some Z6 pistons. Stock or aftermarket. Either would be better. Maybe some Z6 rods too! They both drop directly into a DOHC ZC

Do a leakdown/compression test and make sure the engine can handle it. ZCs are up to 15 years old now, and even though made by Honda, they still wear down with age. Make sure the engine can handle a 65 shot before doing it.

Any good prices on some aftermarket Z6 Pistons & Rods, or would some stock ones do fine in my ZC? Will be rebuilding it, and sending the cams off to Crower to regrind, I want to build it pretty tough for turbo use later on down the road.
Just let me know about who has the best prices, etc. advantages of the aftermarket over stock Z6's
