    GTI 130 pistons in 215

    Anybody ever try putting 130hp higher compression pistons in a supercharged engine? From what i've seen, the 130 pistons make a 10.6:1 ratio, and the 215 pistons make 8.4:1 ratio. I'm sure you would need to run race gas, but is this a feasible upgrade for the increased performance if the motor would even handle it?

    Are those pistons cast or forged? If they are cast, they won't last very long. If they are forged, they might last a little longer... Ron

    They are higher comp yes but they are cast compared to forged pistons in the 215/255scic engines. The stock pistons in the scic engines are real good, the the NA pistons are no where near as strong. I would just add more boost, less complicated and you wont need race fuel. R88

    from what i understand with a supercharger or turbo, you always want lower compression to work with... pref in the 8.x-9.x
