That's what I'm doing, just lower your compression would be just fine. Try using a gasket to reduce compression. A lot cheaper than buying lower compression pistons.94HBsi said:I heard you can push the internals on a d16z6 to about 210 whp. but i wanted reliability so i wanted to know if getting lower compression pistons and stronger rods will do the trick? im just look to boost a "modest" 10 psi daily driven kinda thing.
