oversized pistons
« on: February 03, 2003, 11:27:20 AM »
hey guys, please enlighten me with this procedure

What are the pro's and con's of this procedure?

What's the real effect on this on my engine?

How much power will i gain?

And what's the ideal size for oversizing?

pros:

 - bigger displacement and you can choose from high or low compression pistons depending on application whether turbo/nitrous or N/A.

- more power of course due to bigger displacement
- known brands like JE/Arias/SRP/TODA so far have been tried and tested by many.
- improved reliability or better than stock due to materials used or type of manufacturing like forging, magnafluxing, etc.

you may want to look at these ff: sites for available sizes from std. to oversized:

http://www.todaracing.com/products/honda_b16a_b18c/piston_kits.html
http://www.jepistons.com/pdf/2002-sportcompact-acurahonda.pdf

cons:

- requires precise machining of cyl. block and precised piston installation.

- expensive, ranging from US$ 350+ for basic kits to complete ones with wrist pins and rings. you might wanna add more to the price when changing oem rods to forged/shotpinned ones.

hmmm, let me guess... u're planning to invest on your frankie, right? goodluck HTH!  :)

Oh yeah,

Sori didn't recoginze you.

Nway, just post here again if you arrive n maybe we could share some knowledge about each other's setup when you come here.


Nway, tnx for the answers.

By the way my vtec problem has been fixed.

It was there all along. All i had to do was replace my resonator and put a downpipe so i could here the vtec roar.
