Well i was checking around summit after ordering an edelbrock header for dirt cheap and I saw they had the arias pistons for a D16a6 on clearance for $291.50 so i did some researching and and calculation. So I wanted to know if my calculations were corrected the those pistons will yield a 11.9:1 CR on a D16y8 with a y8 2 layer headgasket.

The summit part number is ARA-3330000-NR

and the specs for that pistons from Arias Website are:

Dome Top
Bore: 75.05
Compression Height: 1.166
Dome cc: -0.3
Estimated CR on a stock D16a6 Head: 10.5:1
Gram Weight: 242

I'm using those same pistons in my A6. Your calculations are about right. CR for those ranges from 10.5-12.0:1 depending on head/gasket combo.

clay the motor. I'm running stock .040 over d16a6 pistons on a y8 head with .032 removed from the assembly. I'm running 11.2:1 CR. I don't have any problems with the valves, but any closer, or a more aggressive cam then tmy stage 2, and I would clay. The valve reliefs are not the same on the non vtec piston, as the vtec valve locations.

Yeah some guys on honda-tech had metioned about valve reliefs but i'm just going to run the same cam if not a crower stage two cuz this car is going to be set up for the street. So you don't think i'll run into problems i mean i'll just keep the headgasket complete to keep the piston a bit lower instead of removing one of the layers.

As long as you guys talk to Tom Jung over there at ARIAS he will let you know EXACTLY what you need to run.
