You want low compression pistons if you're boosting.

haha yea alot has happened....i paid $1200 to get my head rebuilt, $450 for new rings and stuff 2 weeks after that, and then 100 miles after all that my piston and rod messed up. so i am not paying for factory stuff. its pointless and i still have the manifold and stuff in my room so i am going to turbo it in the future. i cant sell this car. i have wayyyyyy too much money in it!

If he wants to make more HP and plans on boosting then why not and he already plans on buying new pistons anyways.. Buying higher compression pistons is only going to gain him less hp when he boosts.
