    You need to rehone your sleeve every time you drop in new pistons/rings- this way you smooth out the cylinder walls, and you groove them properly to seat/break in the new rings.

    I was wrong about the CTR pistons- the B16 pistons will fit and still give you a nice compression ratio.

    Both CTR and B16 pistons will fit the LS rods. You can use either.

    The Carquest in Longmont would do it for $15 a cylinder if you brought them the stripped block.
