The Audi factory options in this country are very
limited indeed ! I could not find oversize replacement
pistons for my MC-1 at a price I could afford when I
was in the rebuilding stage.

Instead I participated in a group buy organized by
Javad Shadzi for a set of Wiesco pistons. These were
82 mm I believe (required boring of block) with a
8.5:1 compression. The machinist would did the work
commented they were very nice.

If you are interested I still have the spec sheet from
Wiesco. I'm  sure they have the "design" in their
database and could make you a set very easily. But
expect to pay substantially more than the ~$550 price
we paid.
