I can't find them anymore on the MED website, looks like they may be discontinued.

The other option is to speak to Alex at the Car Kitchen, he can get custom forged pistons made up.

It’s worth speaking to MED, they didn’t have standard bore 1275 pistons last year, but they got some made by Omega because enough people asked for them.

Spoke to MED and the car kitchen no one has them anymore. Now I have two options either sleeve the engine or
go 1380 and get and get 11cc pistons.

Did MED say that they would get some in if there was enough demand? They need to order 25 sets at a time, I asked in Feb ‘21 and they were available in the June.

Alex got a set of forged pistons custom made, as in just one set and he could possibly get another made

Realistically I think your only option is to get the dish in a set of 6cc ones taken out larger,
I've taken a set of 10cc powermaxes out to 15cc for turbo use before, I would think you should be able to get 6cc ones out to 10cc or close too, any extra could come out of the chambers?

Whats your setup and what compression do you need

I have mirage manifold with a t2 turbo looking to get 100 to 120bhp max. The compression ratio I aim aiming for is 8.5 to be on the safe side.

If your only shooting for 120hp then you can run 9.5:1

From what I have read and what everyone's saying 8.5.1 is what to aim for

With a t2, you'll barely run any boost, and it'll be coming in much later, so a higher than normal compression ratio would work in your favour. I would only go around 9:1 though. I ran 15psi through similar CR on efi with good results.

Std metro turbo was 9.3:1 with no intercooler, and 93hp,
The metro cup engines were allowed 8.65:1 and still no intercooler, and the made around 140hp iirc.
8.5:1 will definitely be on the safe side, but theres room to up it and make it more efficient. Theres a chap making around 150hp on 10:1

Yeh, Gavs mini Estate. He doesn't know what power its running, but the timing is very safe.
