Okay, now that I got the basic turbo kit together with a few odds and ends, let's talk about the next step....internals.
It seems that 9:1 is the way everyone is going for pistons. My question is...
What brand is better- JE or Arias(sp?)
I prefer JE, no specific reason, my local speedshop Jotech Motorsports runs em in all their vehicles.
Also, I noticed on JE's website that there are a bunch of different shapes and things that you can get done to the piston(like gas ports, hollowed-dish-surface-like treatment, etc). What is good for turbo?
dont know, try calling JOtech 972-278-9744, talk to Tony, tell em Mike sent you
Also, what piston seals/rings should I get?
typically, seals and rings should come with the piston set.
RODS- Crower the way to go here, or is there better ones? Also, will they both work with either JE or Arias, and are there any different things to look/match up when getting them.
for sure, crower, otherwise, try calling IMPOPERFORMANCE, they make custom titanium connecting rods. Its definitely a pretty penny however.
Re-Sleaving walls- I take it that there are no parts to order for this, rather it is a process that a machine shop would do for about $400 total? Anything else to know about concerning this process?
damn boss, how many pounds of boost are you planning to run. You are definitely taking the appropriate steps to re-inforce your motor. I never upgraded my internals to my f22 accord. I figured, any motor is liable to pop. especially if you are planning to run 1.0 Bar for the street.
Anything else critical to do while the head is off and the internals are getting a changing(like a better head gasket-now would be a good time to swap them).
I would strongly suggest a fuel management system like Haltech. Im assuming you are wanting to run at least 1.0 BAR for the street. BTW, what kind of wastegate are you running? Im running Turbonetics Deltagate wAstegate, THEY SUCK over 10psi. Get a TIAL. They hold high boost real well...hope this information helps you out.
Thanks(BTW, all ?'s relate to 5th gen lude only)</font>
Balls? That would be just right for the setup hes going for. resleeve, pistons? For sure......<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by Aaron97SH:
