Stock 2.0 pistons on a 2.3 to bump up the compression ?
I read in a Mazda 3 forum that this would bump up the compression to 10.0.1 or something like that is this true? And one other thing iirc the pistons aren't the weakest part of the duratec is the rods but can I run forged rods with the stock 2.0 pistons? I'm not gonna run to much boost and I'm just want to know thanks in advance

Pistons should be identical. The stroke is what makes the difference. For example, the Supertech pistons I have are 11:1 for a 2.3 but 10:1 for my 2.0. The crank/rods are what make the difference, although I'm not sure which or both.
