Re: Stock Pistons for 86 2.2turbo?
Well, I guess if it's at a reputable machine shop, then he is probably sure that you need them. You may try and give Cindy at FWD Performance a call. I know she was selling some on Ebay a while back, but may have sold them. Other than that, if you're keeping the car bone stock(stock boost anyways), I guess you could buy some cast pistons from places like Northern Auto parts, or Ebay. Just make sure you get turbo spec pistons(they have a big dish in them), and (from what I've heard over the years) don't by Hypereutectic pistons(like Keith Black pistons).
