Hi, on my next turbo engine i'm planning on building it with 9:1 compression forged pistons, just wondered what they're like to drive with compared to the lower comp vitara's which i am currently using. And can you still run high boost on them?

I'm using 9:1CR pistons from suzukird.com in my racing car and they work just fine. Tuning is paramount. The motor runs on C16 VP racing fuel with no detonation on boost. The 9:1CR gives great off boost throttle response. Great for tight tracks. I have a J&S safeguard unit for added safety 8)
