Default ej20 pistons and rods

I have a ej20 and i'm needing some reccomendations on what kinda pistons and rods you guys think I should get.. I'm not doing anything crazy to it just want to have strong internals.

Thanks.

Before you rebuild that 2.0, why don't you sit back and think about what yourr budget is and what your end goals are. I was about to rebuild my 2.0L, even bought pistons and rods. Then I did more reading and talked to a few shops and it turns out buying a new 2.5L OEM STI block and machining the 2.0 heads for a hybrid wasn't that much more expensive than rebuilding the 2.0L. Not only that but you end up with a stronger, brand new motor.

Just take a look at a cheap hybrid build with an OEM shortblock before you commit to a 2.0L build.

Good luck!
