Your studs are made by kamax which makes mercedes fastners. So I would say that its a safe bet that they are stock studs.

If you lower your compression you would be doing yourself a favor because if you are going to turbo the engine, you want to be able to shove more air in without making the fuel pre ignite which causes pinging, etc. With a higher compression piston you can put as much boost into the engine. I hope this makes sense.

As said earlier, let a machine shop put in new studs if you are going to do it. They have to be perfectly straight and you can hurt the rod.

Good luck on your project...Try to document everything for when you are done. Try talking to Adam with the 300E turbo, he might be able to give you some good info.
