Because getting forged pistons here in Aus ars sooo expensive,

I wanting 1 x used A15 piston if anyone in Melbourne has one lying around (I threw my used ones out)
Its to send over to the USA as a sample so they can make a set ( or more if anyone
else wants some made up ).
This is for my clubman7 Turbo 2.0 project so the standard 8.9:1 compression pistons will be just fine
Cheers dp

I probably have one in the shed but I'm in Adelaide these days. Are you going for flat tops or just getting forged versions of the stock pistons?

I'm sure someone closer by has one. This might be a bit far out but maybe one of our friends across the pond could post one to the shop for you?

In USA we got three different A15 pistons, and none were 8.9:1. So you'd probably best get the local ones

* centered dish, shallow
* centered dish, deep
* offset dish (different dish than JDM type)

Forged version of stock - This is for Turbo 2.0 so standard comp ( around 9:1 )

First Quote is about AU$1000/set if I buy 3 sets
Anyone in the US bought forgies that I could contact or is US$650 - 700/set what you pay over there?

Our crappy AU dollar at the moment dosen't help

USA A15 compression was 8.3 to 8.5 due to larger dish

Every automaker has gone to high compression with turbo. Only in racing classes do they still use low compression with turbo

PAECO forged
http://www.paeco.com/Piston%20Prices.htm - L16 $460 set
http://www.paeco.com/Piston%20Ordering.htm - Pistons can be made up for any engine in any bore size or compression ratio

Venolia piston for stock A15 is part number 10400
http://www.venolia.com - use the custom order form
forgies $80 each in 2014 - email for current price

Ross Racing Pistons
https://www.rosspistons.com/custom-pistons - use custom form for A15 pistons
for example forged set for SR20DET (4 pistons, pins & rings) $610 USD complete set
RB pistons $820 set of six

Oh, and many of these USA companies have the A15 specs on file ...
