    9.0:1 is not a common CR for Mi16. Boring liners is not for amatures either, Baker Precision Engines is the only place I could recommend. Here's your choices:

    OEM 9.7:1 piston/liner kit $1500 (inc. gaskets)
    Custom Forged Pistons (Aus. made) $1320 (+ liners/boring)
    Wiseco Custom Forged Pistons US$110 each (min. order 12 pistons)

    Or, you could buy the forged pistons I have for sale and skim a 1mm or so off the top. I'd need to verify the current crown thickness though.
    $800 (inc. liners that need boring)

    if i decided to go with the 9.7:1 kit, could a thick head gasket be enough to bring down the CR to an acceptable level for a turbo application? if not, are there other methods for bringing down the CR?
