hello guys.
I bought a 1996 200sx s14 sr20det project for a good price..And the previous owner said the pistons needed a change. but it looks like the valves have been changed after the the damage to the head and piston since it does not have the same little holes as the rest of the head.In other words some previous owner have just ignored the damage,so i wonder is it not that serious and the engine would run fine?
Do i need a new head or can it be saved by me(what can i do?) or a machinist? any suggestions what could have happen to make the damage?
All the other pistons are fine,only the number two piston and head is damaged..
PS:the holes does not go through the piston
Here is some pictures..

Its clear something with a square cross section got in the cylinder and bounced around there for a while. Just sand or file the sharp edges off where the indentations are, because it can cause hot spots. other than that it will run fine.
