    ok I want to build the bottom end a little but I dont really have the money to do it. Im going NA but I have a small shot of nitrous. Are there any other honda pistons that would work better or is there a good aftermarket piston out there. Also what rods are the best for a NA engine

    DOHC ZC rods and DOHC ZC pistons will get you to 12.0:1 (maybe a tad higher) compression, and give you the strength to make power reliably on juice. You can also adapt LS rods to fit, but you'll have to do some machining of the ends, and use thick bushings for the wrist pins.

    PM3 pistons from a D15B7 would get you to about 10.5:1, if you don't want to raise your compression ratio too much.
