I guys.

New to board. Been searchin samurai forums etc with no success, so I thought I would ask the experts. I know the 8 valve is a little low tech for most of you, but I figured it was worth a try. I have a Samurai rock crawler w a 1.6 8 valve out of a 89 Sidekick. It is running on a propane kit. I am rebuilding engine and want to run high compression (12:1). I have been searching around with no luck so far. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I have a thorley header and Isky torqer cam. Hoping w a boost in compression to have around 100 hp without revving engine too much. mostly looking for good tq with stong midrange power. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. :mrgreen:

Thanks
Jason M

use a calculator for cr and look at honda d16 pistons. p26 p28 those are the 2 main i can remember off hand most likely the p28. But you have to plug the numbers in on your setup to be sure. Hope it helps Thanks Stephen

Thanks Stephen. Hadn't though of that. I'll look into those. The machine shop im using does alot of honda stuff. I'll see what they can match up for me. When I find out exactly what fits I'll post it.
