    you can use honda bearings but those are a bit expensive (700.00) I haven't had any experience with clevite bearings but I have heard they make a good product. what kind of pistons are you looking for forged? or just replacements?

    when I was doing my rebuild I called acura of fife and the guy in parts told me something like 720.00 for main and rod bearings alone, and I almost shit my pants.

    correction: with the exception of the b20 pistons. but you don't want those anyway.

    clevite makes good bearings. SURF THE NET you might find something cheaper. As far as piston it all depends on the compression you want i used to have b16 pr3's in my ls block

    Rod 11.92 * 8 = $95.36
    Crank 12.34 * 10 = $123.4

    no where close to $700, the guy in parts mustve been an idiot.

    how much do you want to spend? If you want to redo the ENTIRE bottom end, just buy an entire kit. I found one on ebay for 1200. your choice of compression. I chose 11.3.1. All eagle. hbeam rods,lightweight eagle crank,srp piston,rings,etc. oohhh and its all balanced. the only thing i had to buy seperate was the clevite bearings.
    that was my choice. Figured i'd give you something to think about
