Block: B16
Head: B16
Headgasket: Oem 3 layer - 0.029"

Compression - 10.19:1

Stock compression - 10.20:1

I would say this is a good OEM replacment if B16A pistons cant be found.

If you use P73 ITR pistons in a B16A with stock B16A head, and crank and rods you'll net yourself a nice 9.7:1 compression ratio.

Vs the 10.2/10.4 of a B16A, i wouldn't use them!

i agree with ^^^^^. Why would you want to lower the compression? Unless going turbo, but still there would be a better choice of piston (forged) for boosted application.

If you're going to all the trouble to replace the pistons, i'd spring for some forged pistons while you have the motor open.
