      My question is if anyone has done this and if so if i should get the domes and skirts coated or not. Also, what about going with the .5mm or 1mm bored over ones? Can i do that to get rid of the FSI oil consumption problem?

      how much power are you looking for?

      my pistons domes are coated by swaintech....seens to keep hot spots down. Unless you do a bunch of tuning and timing/boost advances, there will be no gains from the coating.

      Skirt coats don't bother....especially for 100 bucks

      i'd stick with stock bore, why spend extra $ on a bore over....just run more timing or boost

      Now these suggestions are for someone running a mild BT setup...if you're shooting for the sky, expect to throw all your money at it....but the majority of us here stay under 600bhp, which in today's terms is mild.

      well...i'm running a K04 right now with water/meth in the process of getting installed. i was just wondering if the .5 over and 9.5:1 pistons will first of all work without moding the block and second will the K04 work fine with lower compression or is it a waste of money? BT is planned for winter/spring.
