Default pistion question

AS you all know that I have 04 SI. I was wondering where to get new pistions for lower compression to say like 8.8:1 compression. So if any of know where to find them let me know.

all major companies make pistons for your engine. You are planning on a full build. Rods, pistons, arp's through out and most of all doing a head swap.

I will be doing just about anything that can be replaced.
That will include a K24a2 block and a K20a2 head.

Smart man but all you have to do is buy a complete K24A2 engine as it has the same head but different cams than the K20A2's. The only thing you need to do s swap out the intake manifold, fuel rail, throttle body, fpr from the K20 to the K24 as the K24's have drive by wire. Just let me know if you need any help man.

is there any way i can save this post so when I do get to this point I can just pull it up blamo there it is?

Also if I get a turbo for a K20 now will I have to get a new kit when I get the K24a2 or will I have to buy just the Manifold?
