usually people put in 8.5 or 9:1 pistons in when they boost. people also use stronger rods when they put pistons in. the reason for detonation could have been your tune. did you have it tuned by a person who knows what they are doing? im confused about your emanage system. you said you were running the stock ecu? this is a problem. you need to either run a standalone system i.e. aem ems or a piggyback system i.e. hondata, crome, uberdata
