Can anyone help Al out?  I don't happen to have a spare piston(or motor for 
that vintage

BTW, Al, are you sure the block/cyl wall isn't scarred up?  Usually, in 
situations like this, the head can warp as well --was there any head damage? 
Also, did you just up the boost without altering the fuel map?  And regular 
unleaded @ 2 bars is a definite No-No.
