    What heads are you using ? The CR is the difference.

    JE pistons for a GN will work fine as long as the CR is stock TTa spec... glad to hear 308 is still alive and kicking ; btw, how is the leather seats from Hawks holding up?

    they still look good, from what i gather using the TTA head and gn pistons will bump cr up, if i was anywhere but cali where the gas is crappy i would use the JE's.
