    Need new pistons what else should i do?

    As the title says, 1 piston is shot on my 04 rxp. Before that i was running 84/mph with a bucket list of mods however only internals i have done are light weight retainers.



    Planning on going with CP pistons, should i replace my valves while at it?




    Anything else i should do while at it?




    Thanks!

    How many hours on the motor?

    Might be worth upgrading the whole valve train?

    If you are still running the stock 04 valves then you need to replace them as the exhaust valves are prone to failing on the 04's

    What about changing the bearings while you are in there?
