    yes if the pistons AND rods are b16 you can. use the set of wrist pins for the b16.

    No. Do not use the B16 rods. If you do, you'll have a really super low compression LS. The stock rods fit. If you're worried about the valve clearance (will be ok with stock cam timing and stock cams), use clay to check your clearances. The stock wrist pins work fine.

    I like your sig dude... you should get to wiping...


    Like Calesta said, use the LS rods especially if you're using an LS crank.
