Low Comp. Pistons/Rings for .20 over, H22A1 block

hello fellow prelude drivers, I am looking to finally get started working on my H22A1, I bought a gasket set that would hopefully get rid of the smoking its been doing since I've gotten it and also a few knick knacks here and there. My main question is, where can I find low compression pistons and/or just a piston ring set that are made for a block that is bored .20 over? thanks a lot.

You have to sleeve the block to run aftermarket forged pistons. Otherwise you can run H23 pistons. So, the next question, what kind of turbo setup are you looking at?

well I'm looking to turbo the car later down the line. and just run low comp. pistons for now, is that not a good idea? currently my car has Prelude type S pistons on it.

cant he run the nippon cast ones.
when i bought mine (hi comp) 11-1 type s replicas he was offering
low comp alternatives that were cast in the same frm compatible material.
if not would his best bet be oem usdm spec comp to get as low as possible on comp?
