Default Best Pistons?

Just wondering what would be the best pistons to buy for my D16y8? I'm planning to rebuild the engine also cuz I wanna boost it and I need to know what would be best for the little D16? I heard about JE and Eagle, but is Eagle a better brand?

youll find tons of people on here with a boosted d16. As far as pistons go, CP is a great company to go with. I personally rock the vitara pistons in my setup, but thats only because my choices were somewhat limited

Sometimes OEM cast pistons are all you need. Depends on your power goals.

be careful what you say is 'the best'. you can never count out JE, SRP, or Eagle.

CPs are gauranteed to be machined accurately toa tenth thousandth of an inch (0.0001"). You don't even have to measure them to be sure.

yes i have read up on cp pistons...but just because piston A is more accurately measured than piston B doesnt nessecarily mean that the former is better than the latter.
