I read in another post that flat top pistons were standard in 81-83 ZX N/A motors and was wondering what kind of differance they would make in a stock 78 Z with 2.5" exhaust and cold air package. I also wonder if these pistons are affordable brand new and what they would do to my fuel economy???

Somebody said about 15HP. they are affordable. Fuel economy would be good but you got to run 93 oct. gas if you do not want your car to ping. I would do cam with it.

IT WILL RAISE YOUR COMPRESSION TO 10.2 TO 1...AND RAISE YOUR COMPRESSION TO 180 LBS PER CYLINDER, REMEMBER IF YOU DO THIS AND RUN A CAM....YOU'LL NEED TO TWEAK YOUR FUEL MIXTURE..VIA THE MASS AIRFLOW. I JUST DID THAT EXACT THING ON MY 77, BUT I CHANGED TO CARBS FOR THE ADJUSTABLITY, IT IS NAS-TY...BIG IMPROVEMENT FROM STOCK. I RAN THE SECOND STEP CRANE CAM...WITH RETAINERS.
