    Will Civic Type R pistons fit in a B16A with no modifications to the pistons/rods?

    I.E. can i swap them with my stock pistons, and how much better are they than the pistons in my car already? Are they stronger and will they raise my compression?

    thanks in advance.

    No they wont fit on the B16 rods well not on the first gen B16 rods you will need to get the rods shaved at a machine shop i got mine done for 30 bucks both.
    And yes it will raise the compression.My friend told me before putting the pistons in to get them shot peened first and knowing my cheap ass i dint but i think its a good idea if you DO. HOPE THAT HELPS

    you don't need to shot peen ctr pistons, they are just fine the way they are you would take off some of the molybdenum coating, which helps prevent friction.

    Why would you shot peen pistons? You'd probably screw up the fit...

    I guess they should fit my rods, but i want to make sure before i buy them.

    Also, nobody has told me how much stronger they are than my stock pistons.

    i was under the impression that CTR pistons would fit b16a rods just fine... it is the ITR pistons that do not fit properly.
    someone please correct me if i am wrong.
