    Hello Sir.
    So, Ive been around the forum all week searching and have come up with more imaginative answers than absolute.

    My Issue:
    I'm rebuilding the stock c32a1 and have been informed by my Machine Shop that we need to go 0.25 overbore (type AAA pistons/block) which will require new pistons. has gotten back to me with "Discontinued". Im up shit creek with a piss paddle.

    I plan on contacting WISECO tomorrow to see what their options are in the ways of forged pistons, but am unsure about changing compression ratios/stroke/piston height.

    My question for you, (as a long time fan), is::
    Do you have any suggested threads on interchangeable pistons from other engines/ Do you have a idea on how far I may be able to change the specs before i encounter detrimental issues?

    Thank you for your time, Sir.
    Tulsa, Ok.

    Mr. Dv8,

    I could use some help, not that far from you, I'm in Vallejo. Got a 95 typeII 2dr, blown hg of course w 106k on her. Was going to replace hg's or get a JDM but just realized a 3.5 is only $650 instead of $1000 for a type II at Engine World in Emeryville. I can't find anyone that's willing to do the 3.5 swap for me. Can you help me out [email protected]

    Hi Dv8,
    I've been a lurker on for a few years. I do my own thing and I don't get into the quarrels or the productive discussions like most on here. I am passionate about my '92 Coupe that I keep in very good shape. My question for you is about the 5 speed fly wheels. I have two extra of those and my dad is a machinist. I wanted to know if you have the exact specifications for those as if they were new. He needs some detailed guideance so that he can verify that they are able to be re-used and make any adjustments if necessary. I do appreciate your help. Tony from South Carolina
