Anyone know these Pistons?

I'm told these are for a turbo; however, most turbo pistons I have seen are flat on top. If they are, what kind of compression ratio would these be, and is that a good ratio to have on a turbo?

Stock turbo pistons are not completely flat. There is a slight dome.

If I were to venture a guess, I'd have to say maybe 7.0:1 and no more than 7.5.

Here is an 8.0:1 98mm JE:

BTW, what manufacturer are those? They have some wierd looking skirts.

Rings most definately don't look like they are what mahle typically includes - looks like a hastings ring to me with chrome rails, but maybe I need to have a drink and watch some tv (and get away from the computer) :-)

You think these would be worth taking a risk on?

Tough call. I would have to say no since more than likely you are going to have to have a set of cylinders plated and honed to match, and if you are going that far, you might as well use a set of pistons that is exactly what you need. I don't imagine they would just drop in to a set of cylinders without some work.

yeah I've got to do that anyways (3.4 Mahle cylinders will be their new home). But your right, I'm going to hold out at least till I know exactly what these are. Those skirts dont look like mahle.

I don't think I'd role the dice on these unless an experienced Porsche engine builder and/or machinist could look them over (and possibly identify them) for you. Just my $.02....and that's pretty much worthless these days.
