I'm curious about your piston group purchase.. They were 8.5:1?? What's the
reasoning for the jump from stock MC 7.8 to 8.5? I thought that higher
compression motors were'nt good for a high perf. turbo motor? Funny, I
remember a couple yrs ago, people telling me my KH motor (8.3:1) would blow up
if I tried to turn up the boost..TIA.
