Re: Red Top Piston Max HP limit

On a related note. For "3rd party" cast pistons, which don't already have a coating (whatever it is that was done on OEM 10.3:1 pistons), would having the domes ceramic coated help when pushing for higher-than-stock HP? I'm guessing it at least helps with heat dispersion and so prevents h...

Re: Red Top Piston Max HP limit

There isn't a horsepower limit... there is a tuning limit. There is a "flaw" with all the n/a pistons for the 4AGE... the 2nd compression ring rests on ring land that is not well supported (piston on right in photo) http://ost.ebeans.ch/albums/userpics/10005/ring_land_support_slot_vs_holes...

Re: Newb question on how to guide for ITBs on JDM 4AG Bluetop w/ MAP

I guess that was my question. Will there be any potential engine damage for driving around with a vehicle that is not properly tuned (not for very long), but am assuming at least 100-200 miles before the ITB kit and the standalone ECU is installed. being 100% honest... I don't know...odds are there...
