Ever get them in the US ? Found an ad from UK Motor magazine 1986 with a test of a FWD sedan mpfi EA82 5 speed , disc rear, rubber spoiler at rear, rubber skirt at front and 10:1 comp ratio mentioned in specs and write up. Badged as a GTi

 

Not many EA82's left in the UK, almost a rare thing in the first place from the sound of it.

 

Wonder what 10:1 pistons looked like ?

Pretty sure the only MPFI EA82 n/a we got here was the 9.5:1 compression.

I'm guessing more of a flat top piston, instead of the dished pistons in the U.S. model... Would be kinda nice to get ahold of some though.....

I just rebuilt my 87 sedan, webber carb with the original engine.  It had and currently has flat tops in it.  No dish like any low comp piston has.

It's been a long time since I had an ea motor apart I'm my garage, I apologize for the miss information, I thought the n/a motors had a small amount of dish to the pistons....
