I just discussed this via PM with another member. It seems that the EA 71 pistons and EA 82 pistons will fit. I have been convinced that EA 82's are the way to go since they will start me out at around 9.5:1.

No numbers yet, I think it would be fairly simple to find those through any parts supplier that carries soobie parts. I plan to look up a few vehicles that came with the EA 82 engine. Loyales seem to be one of the common models.

your highest compression pistons are going to be 9.5 in mpfi non turbo xt and maybe a rare gl-10 or special order gl. you will want to look for xt's for 1997.

or, if ordering pistons from a supplier, specify 87 xt non turbo mpfi

otherwise, all of the spfi pistons will be 9.0 from 1986 gl-10 and 87.5 and up gl/dl/loyale with SPFI
