OEM D-Series Piston Information
 
I came across this info on another forum and copied the info here. It was just too good for it only to reside in one place. Thanks to Sonny who originally posted this information on HT.

You may want to play with the D-series compression calculator after reading this post :

Here are the contenders so far:

I've measured the P29 and PM7 pistons in several ways and as far as I can tell, they are exactly the same. I wonder why Honda made 2 different part numbers and castings for the same piston? Hmmm...

For example, the PG6B (86-87 Integra) and the P28 (92-95 Civic) both have the same compression height (1.181"). They will be flush with the top of hte block when installed. However, the Integra piston has a small dome, but the Civic piston has a HUGE dish. The difference between the 2 pistons afa compression ratio is very large.

Here are some pics comparing the P29 (88-89 Integra) to the PM7 (88-91 JDM ZC). This Integra piston was slightly modded on top, but I've seen a very clear picture of the top of this piston and can say that it is identical in shape to the PM7.

The ultimate d-series piston archive is back up :

http://www.heeltoeauto.com/tech/dseries/dseries1.shtml

I'll work on pulling this info into SHO so that we have it archived in case it goes down again.
