I was wondering who sells Forged Pistons but dont cost a fortune.I know RED has the overbore ones but im just looking for drop in Piston.
As you know my motor is the 1.8L and was wondering if i should get a 2.0L block from the scrap yard to put the Forged pistons in,or should i get the 1.8L Pistons or 2.0L Pistons and bore out my Block to a 2.0L displacement.

From what i have read most all replacement piston forged or not require some sort of overbore to get them to seat properly. This overbore can be as subtle as little as polishing the sleaves. To the machine shop it is not really any more difficult, read expensive, to take a little more out.

I could be wrong, but I believe the 1.8L has the same bore as the 2.0L. If that's the case it will make your search a bit easier.

As for the drop in pistons, I wouldn't recommend them. When the engines come from the factory, the bore could not be exact or could even be not perfectly round. By doing an overbore before putting the pistons in your making sure they will fit properly.

4Door!!
The Bore on both the 1.8L and 2.0L are the same.The strock is whats different.
I understand when you get new Forged Pistons you have to claen the walls,this is what i meant by drop in Pistons!!
Since the bore is the same then i can get the 2.oL Pistons.Where is the cheapest or best place that makes it for our Tibby!
While im there i should change the Rods and believe Crowder makes them for our Tibs!!
Any help would be appreciated<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
