if you also use AU conrods, the aus have a longer rod and so the au pistons have a higher pin height

ok, if i buy the LPG rods and the ACL Race series hyperlite Intech Piston will it fit streight in to the EL Donk? what will the compression ratio be with out a shim? how thik must the shim be to drop the compression down?
would the compression be about 10.2:1?

also i want to use about 20Psi Limit on boost and about 15Psi for daily use.. would a compression ratio of 9:1 be ok how thik must the shim be with the two AU head gaskets

15 Lb is over 270+ rwkw I doubt you'd require that much boost / power!!
12Lb with 9.2 compression makes a healthy AU engine real quick and reliable!!! Around 250 rwkw... The lower your compression the more laggy it will be to drive on street till boost kicks in....
