88mm on a budget!! (Not on budget anymore!!!) New Dyno!!
I will share a budget build from me!!!
Since I melted a SR16 piston from the a bad tank of gas LOL (My anxiety of not waiting to use all the bad gas or throw it away I knew was bad)
I didnt have a lot of money to trow away so decided to get a set of 1992 300ZX piston 1mm over since they are 87 std bore and take them to the machine shop and notched them using a SR16VE piston as reference. I spotted a Cometic 88.5mm bore .8mm thick for SR20DE made external Lubrication for the VVL and check all the rest of the parts of the motor...

Here its a picture of how the pistons looked installed!!!
The CR Should be 11.5-12.0 since the dome its smaller than SR16VE pistons and the piston doesnt reach the top of the deck by few thousand of an in..

I will post results after I dyno!!! hopefully It will make more power than STD bore SR16VE pistons!!
New pistons!!

New Dyno Results!!

I thought about 1mm oversized 300zx pistons before... glad you did it! You do a lot of nice power to money parts/builds. Keep it up.

- Where did you get the pistons? Price? I had been wanting to do a 88mm build for a while. Glad you are sharing.

What is the part number for the oversized 300ZX pistons?

This will be topped off with a VE head?

I know this is in the VVL section but I wanted clarification that a VE will be on the block.
