thanx man
Is their something wrong with the current pistons? I wouldn't consider replacing them unless they are cracked or extremely worn from infrequent oil changes. Now, If your cylinders need to be bored and honed that's a different issue. I have personally taken apart a few M103's with almost 300,000 miles on them and all the pistons have come out looking great.

I guess my question is what makes you believe the bottom end needs any work at all? Bad compression?
