    def eagle rods and i have weisco pistons but that is p referance
    440 cc injectors are good for 320 hp or so 550 cc good for maby 500hp
    what is your hp goal i wouldnt go off of psi goals. stock honda gasket works fine for me.
    and with a gsr motor you might want a little higher c/r because when your not in boost it is going to feel like a turtle. lol
    maby 9.8 cr forged piston just get a good tune no hacks.

    either pump will be fine but again hp goals make answering q easyer.

    what trim and ars are the compressor and turbine.

    you wont make 500 on 550's you'll max out the duty cycle i had 1000'cc injector on a bonestock gsr motor making 508 to the wheels and running 10's all day long high compression and boost= tons of power if tuned right

    Scrap the Emanage, I like them for OBD2 cars. Chipping a Honda ECU is the way to go :)

    not saying its exactly better depends on your goals

    500 hp is alot for a civic

    didnt say stock gasket is beter but it works.
    and if you have a good tuner then 9.8 would be better because it would take less boost to get to 400 hp range. but if your going to run a hack i wouldent use 9.8 pistons. i also would stay away from the pigg if you are going for that high of hp range. if your going to put all the moneyin to a b18c1 and build it why blow it up to save $300. get you ecu shiped and have it dyno tuned.

    I think the cometic headgasket is really nice comes in may diffrent thicknesses, dont forget your ARP head studs either. 400-500 hp i would run about a 750 injector.
