I don't know. I think they did it do that they can sell custom pistons for more. I see no logic in people using brand new blocks to use only 87mm pistons.. why?
Nikos any idea if those TSX motors (that have just been sitting around not being used) would be able to get away with the 87's. Just thinking since mine is still sitting there with the same amount of miles I bought it with... :rolleyes:

i have 87mm je in my k24, never honed the block nothing, it had 27k miles on it, maybe not the wisest thing to do...but i dont have any problem,s no oil consumption nothing....just dropped them in and kept going. I have about 100 plus hard runs and about 1000k on the build
Try doing a compression and leakdown test and tell us how it turns out...

All that is being said is, "You should never put in pistons without checking clearances".

Most engine builders will tell you that they always order .25 or .5 OS pistons even for stock sleeves and then have the block slightly bored and honed for best results... I don't know to many builders who would order standard bore pistons and hope that the block isn't out of round...

leak down passed aswell,,,i have element block 27k: je 12.5:1 coated skirt
and i just dropped hem in. as jeff stated low mileage nonabused blocks dont have this problem

under certain circumstances this thread would be true...at the moment wth just dropping them in its running like a champ
good to hear...

someone must have been babying that bad boy...

ok I am gettin a k24 element motor and I ordered cp stock replacements 85mm I believe... Am I gonna have to send these back in replacement??? What advise and recommendations would you give someone with a k24 bottom on ordering high compression pistons with no intensions of boring/honing???

I recomend getting the right size pistons for starters. K24 stock bore is 87mm hence the title... :rolleyes:

Also you should take to a machine shop and have them check to make sure the bore is still within spec and doesn't need honing... Is it a used block or new? If new you'll be fine with standard 87mm's.

Did you read the thread at all?
