Ok so now i have a kick ass job, pullin in over twice as much as i use to, so i have about $1500 a month after all bills and savings are acounted for to blow on car parts lol, i love bein an 19 yr old kid with barely any responsibilities. so im thinkin ill build a new turbo engine. i want to keep drivin my 300zxt while i build the engine so i tried finding a turbo engine in the junk yard but nope not a 1. but they do have like 6 na engines for like $200 each. so my question is where can i buy some .30 over bore dished pistons? im looking to run 20-25 lbs of boost, and a small NOS setup. any help? will take all advice plus, what are the strongest head gaskets out there? and if u have any sugestions on the build feel free to add. thanks very much in advance.

20-25 PSI ?? WHY NOT 30-35 Dude to build an engine capable of handeling that kind of pressure, and have it driveable as a street car you are going to spend 4-5K for the engine itself, not to mention...... What am I saying, I dont think you are thinking right.

Yeh get the na block bore it 20mm over get some forged pistons $600 the measurement for the pistons needed for 20mm over bore would be 3.345 and also make sure the piston is made for a 21mm or 22mm pin just depends on what year twinturbo rod you get you will have to measure it. Used twinturbo rods on ebay $40-80 and then you should have a tough engine capable of running 25+ psi pending on turbo size. Thats what I did anyways was the cheapest route I could find for a solid motor and for bearings I used TOGA great oil pressure!

The proper way to truly do this is taking the core motor that you are going to build to your machinist/engine builder. Order a set of 20 over pistons then find that your block needs to go 40 is not a good thing at all. If you have a good machine shop they should be able to get you a good deal on the right pistons. When I build a VG30 I go directly to the true weak spot, the rods. I use a set of Eagle H=beams and forged pistons, usually CSP or JE is what I recomend, but Wiesco's are good too. Take the advice of a engine builder and or machinist. Don't buy a piston before you have a engine in hand takend apart, cleand and inspected. If your interested in buying a built motor I have one on a stand ready to assemble.
