For you 3cyl turbo people, what piston and rods are you running? I have a Garret t25 and I'm going .20 over. What is the best, but fairly cheap setup for just daily driving maybe 4-6 pounds with teenage driving? Lol


Does eagle rods and cp pistons make something for our cars?

Stock is fine up to 10-15 psi as long as you time and fuel correctly. If you want an upgrade, the most economical is GT/T3 rods, with 98-01 G13 pistons. You might have to skim the top of the piston about .5 mm, but I'd have to measure to be sure.

Stock piston in overbored sleeve? NO. Stock internals will be more than adequate.

Not if you use stock bore pistons. You can bore the block if you use over sized pistons to fit.
