I did a search as I'm sure it's been discussed but I was hoping to start a new discussion about turbocharging NA 3.6 engines. Primarily want to talk about pistons and the different options...

Any thoughts? Thanks,

Mike I have the same interest.
Not sure about machining stock used pistons. Maybe there is an answer out there. Also, I have not pursued the option of finding used or new factory TT pistons. I just assume they are rare and expensive.
However, just this week I contacted JE Pistons. They replied they can supply 8:1 or 8.5:1 C.R. pistons. Cost is $175 each with pins, locks and rings, 4 week leadtime.
