3.2 and 3.0 pistons have a different wrist pin location.
If you put 23 mm 3.2 pistons on a 3.0 engine crank and rod combination you will loose compression because of the stroke change and the increased deck height measurement. You can install the bushing with an off set of .030 (we do this all the time) which will increase the piston height but you can't replace the swept area lost by the crank.
