Or get O/S ZB P28 pistons. 8.7:1 C/R with a Z6 H/G if you go .5mm over.

best budget build. tunertoys rods mated to vitara pistons.

and it should land you right in your target c/r

*edit*

and OEM or FEL-PRO for the head gasket.

ive heard that going .5mm over kills block strength. does anyone have any experience with this setup?

yeah, .5mm or .020 wont hurt anything. ;)
not unless you're gonna run some kinda crazy high boost, but then that'll be just as bad for a stock bore too! :lol:
oh and the z6 metal head gskts always worked good for me! but dont forget to coat it good with copper gskt spray though!!!! ;)
