What do switching pistons have to do with machining your jugs? Either 2.2 or 2.4, they're all 84mm and if your cylinders are out of spec, switching to 2.2 ain't gonna help. It's just a nice "while you're in there" upgrade.

To realize the full benefit of any increased compression from upgraded pistons, you're advised to move to a hotter cam. Late E, early E/Solex, S, mod S, there's lots of options.
