    84mm is good for boost, and you get the extra displacement which means more power.

    :)

    Just give Golden Eagle a call.

    The compression ratio is up to you, what kind of turbo you want to use, what kind of fuel, poewr curve, ultimate power goals etc... most people like to stay in the low 9s for compression under boost on a Honda.

    Yes, you should get aftermarket rods if you're already going to spend the money on aftermarket pistons and sleeves, along with boost. It just makes sense. I actually have a set of Eagle rods that I'll let go for $250 if you're interested.
