None of these fit an SVT without rods. Pistons will make minimal difference for HP and TQ at the same compression ratio. We use Diamond pistons. I can have pistons made for the SVT rods.

I'm trying to get as much out of my SVT as possible NA wise. So that mean raising the compression ratio. How much do you think the piston you can make raise it? also, how much would it cost?

There are lots of things to consider when raising the compression of an engine. Not the least of which is detonation. What kind of octane are you willing to run?

If you want to raise the compression there are probably more cost effective strategies like shaving that you could do.

I heard about shaving and also whats the best Comp Ratio to goto and still be safe. I know cars running 12 to something and only running off 91 octane. I'm trying to get as much as I can out of the SVT N/A wise and still have it safe.

Ross Race Pistons. They make them but are made to oder and are expensive. Youre better off with Eagle Rods and JE's or Wisco for the same money. You can buy them for the zetec and theyll fit the svt.
