Good set of busa pistons, rings wrist pin.

8 hours labor.

Cylinger honed/bored for proper piston/cylinder clearance. Set proper ring gap (may need new rings).

Premium fuel.
I'm assuming that is not something the average person can't do themselves, or requires special equipment??

Average person can set ring gap...but probably can't bore/hone for proper piston to cylinder clearance.

Honestly, if I was doing it again I would skip the busa pistons. I don't think there is as much to gain. Cam swap and a set of flat slides is best money spent.

I think the wrist pin is the same size, but you want the 'busa pieces because they are lighter in weight, pins and piston.

Compression I'm guesstimating 12:1, roughly. "Dynamic compression" is a whole 'nother story and a much more important number than the static compression #'s. Cams duration and timing will have a very large effect on dynamic compression.

I believe the diameters are the same size, but I think the widthe is different. I have a stock SV piston here at work. 2.470 looks like SV wrist pin width.
