I was just wondering who among you TURBO guys are using this kind of PISTONS. I just want to know how reliable they are and how have you had them with your TURBO. I am in the process of rebuilding the motor and I just don't want to make a mistake. I know JE pistons are great but THEY cost a fortune. I will probably just push 350whp maximum. This is going to be a daily driven car. Please let me know.

Well for me i thought the same way ,daily drive want topush around 300hp. I used stock gti-r pistons purchased new from Nissan motorsports. Now it has been about a year and half later . I would like to turn the boost up further also have with the help of 4bar program which was installed a while back. In a nut shell for me i thought i would be satisfied but im not i want MORE. I believe and im sure others would agree is to go forged pistons.
This is what i plan to do soon i have a spare bored jwt block with piston coolers waiting for attention. Stock gti-r pistons are fine though they have suited me , i think if you get them too hot they will collaps and you will have some knocking when cold.

I'm kind of in the same boat as you, Dswtflip4u. My plan is to get one Gti-r piston from Nissan Motorsports (nismoparts.com) and send it to Ross Racing Pistons (rosspistons.com) for them to use as a sample to make forged pistons. Their prices are form $389-$424, depending on the dome design.

just for future refrence, nismoparts.com is NOT Nissan Motorsports....
