If you're dead set on keeping it a 1.8L, another option is to use a head gasket spacer or stack HGs. FWIW, I was originally going to stack HGs but ended up going w/ 83mm 9:1 pistons from JRC motorsports -- very happy w/ the decision at this point, but your priorities may be different.

im guessing yours is a 9A or other 2.0? i guess im trying to find 1.8 pistons cuz thats the block i have, and its not easy to source a 9A or 3A in montana. and i would rather spend money on nice pistons than another block. its all goind into a rabbit so killer HP will really do no good. and i think to start i will run a T3 super 60, anyone know a place to get one? anyone have a used rebuilt or rebuildable?

Actually, mine is the stock PG block that came on my corrado G60, bored out to 83mm. If you go with forged pistons, you'll need to get the block machined anyway, so you might as well go a little bigger.

IM "killa" for good deals on turbochargers.
