    Is a B17 deck height not taller than a B16? Sure it may fit, but will the pistons smash into the head once it is assembled?

    Deck Height = same
    Rod Length - not the same
    Bore = same (81mm v 81mm)
    Stroke = not the same (81.4mm V. 77.4mm)

    that's using our ref. section. Im not sure exactly what the rod length actually is, but if someone else wants to find it, go for it.

    according to the quick specs sheet, the b17 block is only .07mm taller. if the pistons fit in a b16, itll fit a b17...atleast theoretically :eek:
