    Use the pistons out of the D16A engines. You can use the CRX Si pistons and rods, but the compression will be quite a bit lower.

    Well, usually if you're burning oil, the pistons should still be ok. Just check your rings and all your seals- replace those and you'll most likely be fine. There shouldn't be any reason to replace the pistons unless they're damaged.

    well it would burn oil if they were hitting the walls wouldnt it?

    If youve already taken the head off and checked the pistons, then you have your answer. If not id follow calesta's advice. The old motor could probably use seals anyway.

    Not necessarily... but if the pistons are hitting the walls and not just sliding against them, you have some serious problems.
