    just wondering what goes into changing pistons in a b18a1 with jdm b16 pistons

    is it just a simple replacement or do i need to do more things ?

    I am pretty sure the B18A and the B18B have the same rods (don't quote me on this though)
    but I think you just have to have them machined to the piston.

    id do it for you, but youre on the west coast, and im sure you can find someone local. all you need is to do is take your old pistons/rods and the b16 pistons to a machine shop. they will do the rest.
