Does anyone have any BTDT's as far as compression ratios, piston styles.

Mike Tipton, are you reading?  How 'bout some of them "Keith Black 
Hypereutectic" ones?

Anyone got any used ones (high compression and/or oversize)?  Is it bad to 
use used ones?  Forged or cast?  Etc...

The good thing is the pistons are the same as watercooled VW pistons, I 
believe, so performance pistons are available.  But which ones, and for 
how much?
