JZW That is what I was thinking. I just cannot decide if I should have a set of stock bore forged pistons or 90.5mm forged pistons. The difference would be pushing the pistons out the top and doing a light hand hone and droping in the new pistons or pulling the motor, doing bearings, timing chain stuff and having it punched out to the next bore size.

Big difference in the labor, but I have been really impressed with how well they run and seal when you actually punch them out and start with a perfect new hole.

lms Use it as a test bed and have the forged pistons waiting on the shelf. Most users have stock internals so you might as well see what it can take.

JZW I love my 9k aero and was thinking of selling it, but now wonder if I should keep them both I was thinking of running a 19t for a little while and holding back the torque and hp a little bit and see how much abuse I can put those t7 pistons through.

My other thoughts were drop the oil pan, pull the head and throw in some woessner pistons and be done with it. Still deciding what to do. It will get a custom tune with stock hw first, then who knows???

Marksy John owning a T7 car = me more intersted in a tune for my Viggen. Still wishing I stuck with the T5 9000 CSE/Aero. STILL FASTER. . . . .. . . .

Bets as to when the 235 pistons give up the ghost ??

sturbo I have been watching posts for while and you sure dog John alot.I am a master tech for the last 15 years and I think John does great work.I have a stage 5 from him and it works well.The info was made public so he tunes.What wrong with that?He is good at what he does and he has tuned quite a few vehicles.He has more experience than most.John charges fair prices as well.Because of this other tuning companys are lowering prices.This is a plus if you ask me.

Vigge Yes its a Aero with B205R in other words a Us. speck 205bhp SE with viggen body kit and interior from factory. Sweden is more or less full of them, so there is alot of "dust" to bitten.

I am liking the black, mine is a coupe, which I like and it has the stereo functions on the steering wheel, which I am sure I will like too.

That's an aero though right? But alas, another one bites the dust.

Truth.

My $1000 for a mailbox tune that was never 100% is one of the things had me saying goodbye to the Viggen sooner than later. I also remember you being thrilled by your GT3071R tune that came on the car.

John, whatever happened to that 240 you bought a LONG time ago? There's gotta be at least one car you keep stock!
