Can I use ITR pistons in my LS or B16?

    b16 and b18 motors all use 81mm diameter pistons, b20 motors use 84mm diameter pistons

    I guess the original text in this was lost in one of our moves...

    In short, no. The LS/B16 rods are wider at the top than the GSR/ITR/CTR rods. You can have your LS/B16 rods shaved for these pistons to fit.

    Vice Versa is true also. LS/B16 pistons wont work well on GSR/ITR rods as the GSR/ITR rods are too narrow.

    EDIT: CTR Pistons follow the same rules as ITR.
