Hey guys looking to do a full rebuild for my g10t as compression is at 100 throughout. My question is do we have a source for pistons readily available? Ive gotta leave town for a long work trip in 2 weeks and would like to have it buttoned up asap. Thanks

If you have access to a lathe (although it may not even be required) you should use 98-01 G13 16V pistons. They might stick out of the block about .020", but may not. Those are your best choice

Thanks superf1y im running a garrett gt1544 at about 12 psi witj your 226 395 cam will that compression be too high for me? Even with the .020 off there will be no dish. I was thinking of 75mm grand vitara pistons but besides the bore i dont know what all is involved (since those are dished)

Vitara piston is a bad choice. 98-01 piston is dished and compression should be close to stock. With that low boost you could go higher than stock.

Id like to go higher eventually in the boost would decking the head and or the block be in my favor since its heading to the machine shop any how? Maybe het the 7:something vitara into the low to mid 8's as far as compression ratio
