    hey whats up. I was just wondering if you can use the oversized CTR pistons (81.25) in a LS block? Cause the bore of the block is 81 (which im sure all of you are aware) i was just wondering if u can still use this pistons, cause i was thinking that there was be some clearance from the piston rings. thanks, can use your help.

    you will have to get the block re-honed/slightly bored for the larger ring.

    i was also wondering, if i were to get aftermarket LS connecting rods, can i use them with the ctr pistons? i heard connecting rods from endyn or crower are something like open pin or something like that...but i heard that they wont work unless they are modified. is this true?
