    ok i bought a b18a1 the other day cuz i wanna stay with obd0 and i wanna do a N/A motor. and i know i need new mounts and wiring and all that stuff... but i was wondering what kind of aftermarket pistons i could get and rods. stock ls pistons give u a bad CR and not much valve clearance and the ls cranks are a longer stroke im going to go take it and get it bored and honed but im only going 2 over stock. Also i was wondering can you use any v/tec head i wanna go with a b16 head but does it have to be obd0????/ thanks for your time

    youd have to modify the ls rods. i think the pct/p30/pr3 pistons all use a bigger wrist pin.

    You do not have to get specifically a VTEC oil pump.All obd2 oil pumps are the same.Its the obd1 and obd0 ones that are different.If you want to look it up you can,go to a autoparts store and check the part numbers on obd 2 dohc vtec oil pumps and they are the same.CRV,99-00 Si,GSR,LS,type-r all of the obd2 ones are the same.No need to spend a shitload on a dohc vtec oil pump that people sell for alot when you can use another one thats the same and cheaper.

    you can use a b16 crank but you'll lose displacement and compression, so big loss of power there, and even if you bore it out the maximum you can get with a b16 crank in a b18 block is 1840cc thats at an 87mm bore
