    RIVA'S high comp pistons

    Has anyone tryed the riva's high comp pistons?

    Just wondering the + and the - of them on a stage1 + sc wheel rxp for example
    There are huge gains of power?
    What about the fuel requirments?
    its a bolt on item or needs machine work on the block, head, valves etc...

    Also wondering what to expect if install them on a bone stock gtx 185 exept from the reliability (i think there are no forged pistons on the 185's)

    I think that you playing with the fire of adding a big charger on the 185's due to the non strong pistons

    the higher comp.ratio pistons will require the use of race fuel on higher boost engines, or at least a mix

    Sounds expensive to me
