Turbo Pistons Help

Post by Dirtym30 »

Hi m30 Gurus. I’m about to pull the trigger on a set of cp Carrillo pistons in prep for a turbo in the future. The only thing is off the shelf I can get a set with all the oem specs except the compression ratio which would be 8.5:1 my understanding is stock is 8:1. Would I still be able to use these pistons before I turbo and on stock tune? I’m not financially ready to turbo quote yet but I would like to drive my car around in the spring. Thank you all. :rofl:

Sure, it'll work better (probably) as an NA car with 8.5 rather than 8. But my question is, have you measured your engine to know what pistons to buy?
