    i just picked up a b18b and i was wondering what rods i should get? i was looking at the eagle rods but im not sure which woul be best for boosting...H beams? and should i get them at stock length?

    now the other question- i just finished swapping a b18b1 into my crx and the motor i got today has b18b printed on it not b18b1 so can anybody tell me why the new motor doesnt have the 1 at the end like my old motor? thnx for all your help i appreciate it a lot. peace -mike

    no 1 on the end = JDM

    get stock length rods unless you are doing a custom stroke crank or custom wrist pin height pistons.

    best for Boosting = Pauter. :)

    but the egales will most likely be fine for your setup.

    IB Spec H beam turbo rods.

    9 MM ARP rod bolts, torque to 38 lbs.

    Similar design to eagles, but with better bolts.
