well guys, it looks as if the best option in my poor engine is to replace the pistons/rings with single oversized ones. my question is this: where can i find cheap pistons? i am not interested in origional german quality, just want to get a cheaper alternative that, unfortunatly, may not last as long. i do not want this project to break the bank. if anyone knows where i can get pistons cheaper than at the benz-bin ($110 bucks a piece w/rings) PLEASE let me know! thanks for all the help so far fellas.
