I read that when rebuilding the 2.0l cvvt engine that you could use 1.8L pistons on the 2.0L rods to increase compression. The article said it would bump it to 11:1. Has anyone done this mod on a rebuild? The reason I'm asking is, we have a 04 elantra 2.0L that we are racing circle track, that will be getting a little tired after this season in Nov. and I plan to rebuild it over the winter. This is one of the mods I plan to do and since it has to remain "stock", no after market parts, I can do this with factory oem parts even if it's from a different size engine as long as it is "oem" parts. If there are any other mods that I can do and keep it basically stock, I would appreciate any input.. Oh, and the ECU is covered I think but input about that would be great also. One last thing, is there any longer stock springs I can get for it that would fit so I can preload, compress, them and replace my stock strut springs.

Thought I was once, then found out I wasn't, got confused, went back to where I was and found myself lost.
